This is a very rare sample of green alpine fluorite featuring several modified crystal faces. The predominant octahedral faces are accented by a slightly purple second generation layer that features rhombohedral and cubic faces.

Leisalp, Valsertal, Kanton Graubünden, Switzerland

Green schist quartzis considered to be among the very finest from the alps. This is an excellent sample from the Leisalp, Valser valley in Switzerland. Two upright crystals forming a "V" are surrounded by smaller ones at the base. As so typical of this find, green chlorite inclusions at the base add a pleasing colour contrast. Great aesthetics and condition!

Winterstock, Göschenertal, Kanton Uri, Switzerland
Size: 9 x 7.4 x 2.8 cm
 

This is a tall Swiss gwindel of great condition and shape! Small damage and contacts are present at the base, but the top section is fully pristine. Great shape and great twist!

Size: 5.7 x 3.4 x 2.4 cm
 

This is an incredibly lustrous and transparent epidote crystal cluster. All crystals have perfectly shaped and undamaged terminations, and nice striations along the prism faces. Due to the exceedingly fine transparency the typical pleochroism effect is very well visible! Great aesthetics, quality and condition!
