thumbnail Item PS1 - VANADINITE - Mibladen, Morocco; a great specimen of vibrant, really large vanadinite crystals (up to 3/4" across). Specimen has a good sheen to it, and measures 2 1/2" x 1 1/2" x 1 1/2". Condition is fine. $425.          
thumbnail Item PS2 - TOURMALINE - Momeik, Mogok, Burma; a nice specimen of the raspberry-red "mushroom tourmalines" that was on the market some years back. This one measures 1 1/8" x 3/4" x 1 1/2", and has great color (and light does pass through it on the perimeter). $88.          
thumbnail Item PS3 - RUTILE - Graves Mountain, Lincoln County, Georgia; (thumbnail) a single, jet-black crystal with a good chrome lustre. Specimen is in good condition. $60.          
thumbnail Item PS4 - EMERALD - Old Rist Mine, Hiddenite, North Carolina; a large, 12-SIDED crystal - terminated, cutting quality, and great color. Weight is 62 carats, and it's an amazing North Carolina emerald to hold and see. The rarity of an emerald with 12 very definitive sides, versus the normal 6, makes this a real gem and a museum piece.
