Several large fluorite crystal clusters, up to 4.5 cm across (lower right side) are scattered on a sturdy, white granite matrix. The big crystals are in fantastic shape and condition. All in all a masterpiece from the Alps!

WOW! What an incredible fluorite crystal perched on a bed of drusy quartz crystals! The fluorite features predominating rhombohedral, and smaller cubic faces, resembling the form of a garnet!

WOW! This is a huge and very well formed, elongated azurite crystal. As so typical of Tsumeb, it is altered to malachite in some small places. The colour is excellent, and the luster is superb! The stepped growth structures in the top section make it truly special and unique!


IN03 - Tourmaline - 17000€
Chia Mine, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Size: 18.5 x 3.7 x 2.4 cm
 

WOW! What a gorgeous multiple-coloured tourmaline crystal! The picture was just made with natural daylight from the back side, no artificial light used, and the colours are indeed that strong and intense. There is one repair right above the pink zone, but this was professionally done and is barely visibly. The termination is perfect and shows a pleasing yellow colour. The sidecar crystals are all terminated. The size of the crystal is indeed shocking, it is a true masterpiece for an advanced collector of gem species!

All of these little condition issues are very well acceptable once a specimen has this outstanding beauty and gorgeous visual impact!
