Barite

Add to OrderNot checked

A new find just before the Tucson Show at a mine that had never really been worked for specimens. These new barites have the most incredible luster and tremendously sharp chiseled crystals to 2.4 cm (rare in Mexico where the habit tends to be tabular). They are completely transparent and run from a blue grey to yellow grey pastel colors. This one is kind of in-between. They make wonderful display specimens and were written up briefly in the newest Min. Rec. issue. Very difficult to get the color in the photo unfortunately.

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!
