IN104 - Apophyllite with Stilbite SOLD
Poona, Maharashtra State, India
cabinet - 13.5 x 10 x 5 cm


Apophyllite with Stilbite from Poona, Maharashtra State, India [db_pics/pics/in104a.jpg] Apophyllite with Stilbite from Poona, Maharashtra State, India [db_pics/pics/in104b.jpg] Apophyllite with Stilbite from Poona, Maharashtra State, India [db_pics/pics/in104c.jpg]

Showy large specimen of green Apophyllite with white Stilbite. The largest green Apophyllite is an isolated crystal that reaches 4cm in length and stands up straight off the matrix. The green crystals contrast well with the stark white, snow-like covering of Stilbite, which is a mixture of larger and smaller sized crystals. Overall a very aesthetic show piece.

Sculptural yellow Kunzite crystal. The unusual shape was formed by natural etching in the pegmatite pocket. Highly gemmy crystal with great luster, and it's undamaged.

Large 'imperial' Topaz crystal of unusually good transparency. The color, luster, size, and transparency of this crystal are all top notch, in fact I'm surprised this crystal survived being cut. Rarely do you see such a large and transparent imperial Topaz for sale. The crystal does not have a classic termination, rather both ends are contacted and recrystallized.

Gemmy yellow Apatite in Quartz matrix. These are uncommon on matrix and even less common when the matrix is only Quartz, usually the matrix is mostly composed of brown minerals. The largest Apatite has a ding, but there are many others and it is still showy.

TZ115 - Spinel $ 2800 (=~ CAN$ 0) SOLD
Mahenge, Morogoro, Tanzania
miniature - 4 x 4 x 4 cm


Spinel from Mahenge, Morogoro, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz115a.jpg] Spinel from Mahenge, Morogoro, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz115b.jpg] Spinel from Mahenge, Morogoro, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz115c.jpg] Spinel from Mahenge, Morogoro, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz115d.jpg] Spinel from Mahenge, Morogoro, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz115e.jpg]

Large red Spinel crystal with good luster and areas of gemminess. This is a good sized spinel for the locality and very good quality for what is typically available. The gem value of these crystals is just so high that typically any crystal with even a hint of gem value is broken up for rough, and what is left for us collectors are chalky, brick colored crystals that aren't so appealing. In fact I'm shocked this one survived because there are plenty of small areas where stones could be cut in this crystal.

Spinel from Mahenge, Morogoro, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz116a.jpg] Spinel from Mahenge, Morogoro, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz116b.jpg]

Red Spinel crystal with good luster and areas of gemminess. A complete octahedron with two tips that are dinged, otherwise complete with good luster. This is a good quality crystal for what is typically available.
