Fluorite on Quartz (ex Nelson Coll.)

ID: 3443
Add to OrderNot checked

A complete sphere of yellow-amber fluorite measuring 3.4 cm sits on a matrix of white quartz crystals that coat basalt. This is the first occurrence of cryptocrystalline spherical fluorite in the Deccan traps of India, discovered in 1998. In excellent condition and a highly aesthetic example of this very rare form of fluorite.

Super bypiramidal tan crystals of wardite to 9 MM associated with a fan of esophorite crystals and 2 MM groups of zanazziite crystals ( a very rare calcium iron magnesium berylium phosphate), all on a matrix of large deep rose quartz crystals that are sprinkled by a secondary druse of quartz. A spectacular old timer from Taquaral.

Galena with Sphalerite on Calcite (ex Nelson Coll.)

ID: 3231
Add to OrderNot checked

A very unusual galena specimen consisting of two plates (one straight, one curved…yes curved!) acting as hosts for tiny galena cubes that resemble a miniature city seen from above. These are sprinkled with tiny sphalerite crystals. The rear consists of off white calcite prisms and tiny quartz crystals. Bizarre and beautiful!

Elbaite (ex Harvard Museum Coll.)

ID: 4258
Add to OrderNot checked

A highly unusual elbaite specimen composed of two main compound crystals made up of many pinacoidal crystals with a fibrous nature, in parallel growth. The color is a dark greenish grey and the luster is very good. As you will notice one of the main crystals grew against the matrix, creating a flat, hindered termination.
