This is a gorgeous miniature from the very best find of the species ever made! The specimen features two V-shaped, thick and sturdy crystals in perfect arrangement.

This is truly a very rare chance to get a killer world-class brochantite in miniature size!

Size: 8.8 x 5.3 x 3.6 cm
 

This is a fantastic, 3-coloured etched tourmaline on matrix! The surface shows very fine etching patterns - triangles, that reveal the trigonal crystal structure of the species. Both terminations are well developed and undamaged. Great aesthetics and condition!

Oberdorf an der Laming, Steiermark, Austria
Size: 5.3 x 1.4 x 1.3 cm
 

A very large and very sharp elongated bi-colour crystal of strontianite. A few side crystals and a small dolomite matrix make this an extremely fine sample of the species! As good as crystals of this habit can get! Found in the 1960s, no more crystals have ever reached this extraordinary quality!

N'Chwaning Mine, Kuruman, Northern Cape Prov., South Africa
