Sharp, distinct Hureaulite crystals to 9mm long - very good sized for this mineral as most are smaller and drusy in style. This specimen has some of the largest, most distinct crystals I've seen.

Transparent green Sphene crystals on matrix with Epidote crystals. This specimen is outstanding for both the transparency of the crystals plus the upright arrangment of the crystals, it's also nearly a floater with good crystals on both sides.

Almost always found as loose singles, these Euclase have a characteristic blue stripe running up the center. I bought this at the Tucson show in the 1990s and have not seen another like it. Two Euclase crystals 1.5cm long in a cluster of Quartz crystals. The Quartz have hair-like, golden inclusions of what is possibly Rutile.
