VM10 - Sapphire - 8500€
Ratnapura, Ratnapura District, Sabaragamuwa Province, Sri Lanka

This crystal shows a pleasing pink colour and blue colouration in the core section. It is doubly-terminated and showy sharp striations on either side. Both terminations are well formed and pristine.


AS33 - Descloizite - 5500€
Berg Aukas, Namibia
Size: 7.2 x 4.9 x 4.1 cm
 

Berg Aukas is world-renowned for its extraordinary descloizite (zinc analogue of Mottramite) specimens, and this particular specimen represents the very best quality and crystal size for this most relevant locality. The piece shows one excellent spear-point bladed crystal. The dimension of this main crystal is absolutely outstanding - even for Berg Aukas. The luster of all crystals is superb and the assemble couldn´t be more aesthetic. I use the designation "masterpiece" very carefully, but this specimen is the very best piece I ever saw from the locality and "masterpeice" is the only labeling, which does justice to it. No significant damages to report.
