ID: 6210

A wonderful specimen of textbook, clear topaz crystals to 4.2 cm sit on a matrix of white albite blades and minor quartz. All over the matrix there are doubly terminated orange childrenite crystals averaging 5 MM. The topaz is so clear you can see the matrix underneath, and the specimen is in exceptional condition.

Several well formed pseudo-octahedrons of scheelite with exceptional luster and a deep gemmy orange color sit on a matrix of clear quartz crystals. The largest scheelite is 4 cm end to end and sits near the top of the specimen. A stunning example of scheelite from Pakistan, yes Pakistan! One of the best and most aesthetic pieces I have seen from this locality!

Beryl Var. Bi-colored in a Biotite cast after Beryl. Ex H. Obodda Coll.

ID: 6200
Add to OrderNot checked

A bi-colored naturally etched beryl crystal (pastel blue and pink) sits inside a pastel greyish cast of biotite crystals. Herb’s label says aquamarine, but I believe the center of the crystal runs towards pink morganite. One of the most unique specimens I have ever encountered. * For some reason I could not get blue color correctly on photos, they appear greener than they are, instead of blue.
