ED02 - Iron Rose - 9000€
Mörchnerkar, Zemmgrund, Zillertal, Tirol, Austria
Size: 9 x 5 x 3.6 cm
 

WOW! What an alpine killer specimen! A lovely nest of mica crystals is host to a wonderful 7 by 4.6 cm ironrose! This specimen is easily one of the 10 best hematites i have ever seen from the Austrian alps. It has a remarkable size, wonderful rose structures, nicely bevelled faces, great iridescence and outstanding aesthetics! Just jaw-dropping!


AF07 - Etched Smoky Quartz - 1050€
Fedenstock, Fellital, Kanton Uri, Switzerland
Size: 7.5 x 4.1 x 3.2 cm

Etched smoky quartz is probably 100 times rarer than etched clear quartz. This is one of very few fine etched smoky quartz crystals i have ever seen! Great colour and shape.


A115 - Titanite - 750€
Bruchgraben, Hollersbachtal, Pinzgau, Salzburg, Austria
Size: 11.1 x 8.9 x 4.1 cm
 
 
 

Two 2.9 and 2.3 cm tall titanite crystals sitting on a very beautiful typical alpine matrix! A few dozen small Apatites and pseudo-cubic calcites are in association and provide a wonderful contrast. The titanites have razor-sharp edges, there is one small chip on the tip of the main titanite crystal, but it goes fully to the back side and is not noticable from the front viewing angle.


PN25 - Iron Rose - 350€
Monte Prosa, Prevat Valley, Central St Gotthard Massif, Tessin, Switzerland
Size: 4.5 x 2.7 x 2.1 cm
 

Great miniature featuring sharp crystals and wonderful iridescence!
