thumbnail Item PS1 - CALCITE on SPHALERITE - Nikolaevskiy Mine, Dal'negorsk, Russia; a nice Russian specimen consisting of white, flattened calcite rhombs along the base of a crystallized sphalerite grouping. Striations on sphalerite surfaces adds to it's aesthetics. Measures 3 1/4" x 2 3/4" x 2 1/2". Condition is very good. $125.          
thumbnail Item PS2 - AMETHYST - Jackson Crossroads, Wilkes County, Georgia; a fine specimen of Georgia amethyst! This matrix piece exhibits no damage, and has roughly 8 or so doubly-terminated crystals. Dimensions are 2 1/4" x 1" x 1 1/2". (Note that I have many pieces in inventory, including some large cabinet-sized pieces with no damage. Drop me a request if interested.) $95.          
thumbnail Item PS3 - FLUORITE - Rogerley Mine, Frosterley, Durham, England; one of the best English fluorites I've carried. This piece has a nice green color and nice clarity to the crystals. Note that these are HIGHLY fluorescent (and a blue color in outdoor light). Measurements are 2 7/8" x 3" x 1 3/8". Condition is very good. $220.          
thumbnail Item PS4 - PENTAGONITE on STILBITE - Wagholi Quarry, Poona, India; thin aqua-colored crystals of this silicate are heavily spread across white stilbite crystals in this specimen. When I looked up the difference of this mineral versus cavansite, I learned that it forms at high-temperatures (versus cavansite which forms at lower temperatures). Specimen is in fine shape, and measures 2" x 1 3/4" x 2". $59.          
thumbnail Item PS5 - AQUAMARINE on MICROLINE FELDSPAR - Erongo Mountains, Namibia; a 1" long, terminated aqua of good color is embedded in a white microline feldspar matrix.
