From the 2014 find, this is a superb cabinet specimen of this cesium-rich beryl variety. Excellent color and luster, with crystals to 1.2 cm. Most of the crystals are doubly-terminated. 6.9 x 4.9 x 3.5 cm.
Large, beautiful pseudomorph of malachite after azurite from Onganja. The malachite is well crystallized in velvety sprays, as can be seen in the close-up. The large crystal at the top is 6.0 cm long. 6.9 x 6.9 x 5.6 cm.
Good specimen of pale yellow smithsonite and salmon-colored willemite from Berg Aukas. The smithsonite has the "wheat sheaf" crystal form common from this locality, some of which are doubly-terminated, and measures to 2.6 cm. The willemite is fluorescent. Better in person - it was difficult to photograph due to the low contrast of the smithsonite crystals. 6.2 x 5.1 x 2.2 cm.
Wonderful small specimen of doubly-terminated rose quartz on feldspar with a dusting of eosphorite. The rose quartz crystals have good color and luster, and measure to over 2 cm. The eosphorite is on both sides of the specimen. 2.9 x 2.6 x 1.7 cm.
The color of the crystals is superb, reminding me of the finest from the Pulsifer Quarry in Maine. The main face features two doubly-terminated crystals to 1.3 cm along with a smaller, unterminated crystal. Both main crystals have a partial coating of massive quartz. The color is distinctly zoned and lighter towards one end. Minor bertrandite is also present. 2.6 x 2.6 x 2.1 cm.
A great miniature specimen of fluorapatite from Brazil. The color of the crystals is superb, reminding me of the finest from the Pulsifer Quarry in Maine. The main face features a doubly-terminated crystal measuring 1.3 cm along with several smaller, terminated crystals. Some light tan bertrandite is also present. 4.4 x 3.7 x 1.9 cm.
Large single crystal of gem eosphorite, with a fine orange-pink color. The crystal, although somewhat rough on the surface, is transparent to translucent. A fine example of this secondary phosphate from the 1969 finds. 2.0 x 1.5 x 0.8 cm.
Looking very similar to "moor's-head" elbaite from Elba Island, this is a fine small cabinet specimen from Burma! The main crystal measures 2.7 cm and is doubly-terminated. 8.3 x 6.9 x 5.1 cm.
Deep green, translucent to transparent crystals of demantoid from Iran. Superb color and form for the locality. Minor edge wear. 3.3 x 2.3 x 1.3 cm.
