Icicle-like etched Heliodor crystal. Transparent crystal with medium yellow color. Not quite as spectacular as the Ukrainian Heliodors, but at a fraction of the price. Perfect except for where a narrow ridge of crystal broke off at the rear top. Weighs 57.8 grams. .

Recently mined specimen of a 4 x 1.5cm Aquamarine crystal with an attached Quartz crystal and Schorl crystals. Undamaged and very showy.

Aquamarine from Padre Paraiso, Minas Gerais, Brazil [db_pics/pics/c313a.jpg] Aquamarine from Padre Paraiso, Minas Gerais, Brazil [db_pics/pics/c313b.jpg] Aquamarine from Padre Paraiso, Minas Gerais, Brazil [db_pics/pics/c313c.jpg] Aquamarine from Padre Paraiso, Minas Gerais, Brazil [db_pics/pics/c313d.jpg]

Gorgeous and gemmy blue, blue/green aquamarine crystal with Muscovite attached to two sides. Undamaged with great glassy luster and highly transparent in the upper half. The prism faces have geometric growth features on the sides where the muscovite is present. The previous label shows a price of $3,800 - I got this in a 'fire sale' from a collector and am passing the savings on. Aside from some veils, the upper half is like transparent blue glass. Unfortunately the camera focuses right through the crystal to the back faces where the muscovite is present, making it look much worse in the photos as compared to when you hold it in your hand. Nicely beveled termination edges with a random, etched depression in one of the bevel faces.


C364 - Aquamarine with Spessartine $ 280
Shigar Valley, Skardu, Pakistan
miniature - 4.3 x 3 x 2.8 cm

Tabular Aquamarine crystals adjacent to a clear Quartz crystal, on Muscovite. These Aquas are typically found on flat plates of Muscovite and the structure and display of this one is unique and striking. There are 3 main Aqua crystals, one of which has some interference growth on one side which is not damage. Professionally cleaned and exceptionally clean and bright.

Transparent blue Beryl from the Erongo finds. This one is unusual for the locality in that it is totally transparent and it's lightly etched. Complete and undamaged. Good luster too, better than photos.
