Doubly terminated amethyst sceptre on smoky quartz. Excellent miniature! Fine specimens from this locality are very rare and hard to obtain. The crystal tips are in perfect condition.
A large 21 mm demantoid crystal right in the centre of a solid rock matrix. Calcite and small pyrites are present in places. No damage.
Two lovely benitoite crystals measuring 22 and 18 mm across on natrolite matrix. Small neptunites provide a beautiful contrast. Both benitoites are pristine and free of damage.
A superb silver wire on nicely contrasting calcite matrix. As so typical of these, a few acanthites - truly crystals, not just a black crust - grew on the silver wire and add even more beauty and interest. What a killer specimen in toenail size!
A deep green cluster of octahedral fluorites on milky quartz crystals. Great aesthetics!
Gorgeous alabandite crystals in a cluster with some small rhotochrosite balls! A large 1 inch crystal is placed right in the centre of this lovely specimen and sets a clear focus. Some of the side crystals are twinned, and all of them are in perfect condition. A fantastic small cabinet sample form the very best find of alabandite ever!
Superb rubellite crystal from the recent finds at Malkhan. The crystal is exceptionally clear and totally free of any damage. Minor mica crystals are present in the lower section, also on the lower back side. It has beautiful striations and an amazing termination!
Fantastic bi-colour fluorites forming a beautiful cluster! The colour is a very deep and strong yellow, framed by a thin purple layer and a blueish clear zone outside. A small calcite on the side sets a nice contrast. No damage to all crystals in the centre, the outline certainly shows the usual contacts. A very colourful specimen with great visual impact!
A wonderful 7.1 cm wide butterfly twin on sphalerite matrix. The clarity is excellent, and also the colour is a very fine deep amber brown, as so typical of these. There is tiny rubbing present on the edges, but it is truly very small and not a detraction. Superb composition and showy all around! The sphalerites are very well formed on the rear side.
What a lovely doubly-terminated, elongated hematite with side cars! No damage.
Amazing cluster of composite gold leaves from Cavnic! The gold has superb luster and is very well formed all the way around.
This ia a beautiful floater specimen of etched heliodor. It has stunning colour and clarity and is very showy on all sides. Great condition and shape!
