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.

Fluorite on Sphalerite

ID: 5096
Add to OrderNot checked

A stunning and unusual fluorite consisting of an elongated (etched?) crystal that ends in a cube termination and is associated with cubed faces along the side of the crystal and sits on sphalerite crystals with micro quartz and galena crystals. One of the neatest pieces I’ve seen out of this locale!. Originally in the collection of Leonard Himes who purchased it from Ocus Stanley in the early 70’s and sold it to D. Nelson in 2002.

Beryl Var. Aquamarine on Quartz (ex Nelson Coll.)

ID: 3170
Add to OrderNot checked

A very unusually zoned aquamarine crystal with an exceptional termination and a cloudy core that forms a hexagonal outline within the crystal. As you can see, the beryl is cloudy up until the termination, drawing a very distinct line and then becomes of faceting grade. This wonderful crystal sits on a matrix of quartz, feldspar and a smaller beryl on one side. Super!

A large smoky quartz crystal on a matrix of cookeite, lepidolite and albite. There’s a sharp growth phantom on one side of the crystal and some contact on the rear, but it does not affect the other display sides. An old Eastern classic. Super!

Fluorite with Muscovite, Bertrandite (ex Nelson Coll.)

ID: 3645
Add to OrderNot checked

A beautiful specimen consisting of very gemmy (the matrix can be seen under the crystals) and lustrous blue cubes of fluorite with a deep purple color zone on the edges. These sit on a matrix of muscovite and tiny clear crystals of bertrandite. There is contact on the rear of both larger groups of fluorites, but it is on the rear of the crystals and it does not affect display. A stunning piece!
