LI02 - Liddicoatite - SOLD
Estatoby, Sahatana Valley, Antananarivo Prov., Madagascar
Size: 14 x 8.9 x 8.7 cm

This is a gorgeous sample of multicolour liddicoatite from the recent production at Estatoby mine. The colours range from a deep red on top to green and cognac brown in the middle and lower sections. The termination faces are nicely bevelled on all sides and in pristine condition. The composition of two main crystals in parallel grwoth and another crystal crossing at the lower front side gives character to the piece and makes it truly unique. The piece reveals all it colours at best when backlighted with led light spots. Striking size and incredible visual impact! Illustrated in the MINERALS magazine by Tomasz Praszkier, Issue#6, page 16. Price on request.

A489 - Tourmaline - SOLD

Size: 7.5 x 5.4 x 4.3 cm

WOW! What a killer tourmaline from a classic US locality! Very distinct mint-green and turquoise-green colour zoning gives a unique character. The shape is gorgeous all around, combined flat and steep pyramidal faces make up an amazingly fine termination! Great striations are present on all sides. The piece features a cluster of two crystals in parallel growth. From an old private collection, the label is coming with the piece. Absolutely stunning colours, condition and form combined with great rarity and provenance. Superb indeed!

TL01 - Anglesite - SOLD

Size: 11 x 9.8 x 4.7 cm

Clear yellow anglesite crystals to 7 cm in length forming an awesome crystal cluster! Three large crystals head out of the crowd and set a clear focus. The piece is in excellent condition, there are just a few tinly little rubs on a few edges, but they are insignificant and forgivable. The piece is a floater and crystalized on the back sie as well. What a gorgeous piece from the classic old finds!

A388 - Liddicoatite - SOLD
Bevaondrano, Ikalamavony District, Matsiatra Region, Fianarantsoa Province, Madagascar
Size: 5.7 x 2.7 x 2.4 cm

WOW! What a killer tourmaline crystal from an old find in Madagascar! The crystal is in fact a composite cluster of several individuals in paralel growth. The termination faces are stepped and all well developed. It displays indeed very well from all sides. The colour is green on top, changes to a blue-green in the center and peach-pink towards the lower end (which is actually more intense in person). Only about a dozen of this style has been found, and this is truly a superb one!
