Cubic light green Fluorite on and in a hollow, spherical group of Galena crystals. This unique specimen is known as the 'Miner's Headlamp' for it's resemblance to a miners helmet and headlamp. The form of the Galena is very much like a helmet, hollow with a medium green Fluorite inside. The Fluorite on the front of the "helmet' is stepped and highly lustrous and undamaged. The Fluorite is light green in color - the camaera did not pick up the color.

Namascotcha Mine, Mutala, Alto Ligonha, Mozambique
small cabinet - 9 x 3.2 x 2.8 cm

Exquisite etched gem crystal of light yellow/pink Kunzite. Glassy luster with nice form and entirely gem facet grade inside. Come with old labels showing a price of $1350. Undamaged and very good crystal. This is one of the best Kunzites I have seen from this locality.


C313 - Aquamarine $ 2000
Padre Paraiso, Minas Gerais, Brazil
small cabinet - 7.3 x 3.5 x 2.7 cm


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.


C371 - Smithsonite $ 1800

Three terminated Kunzite crystals rising out of a Quartz matrix. The Kunzite crystals are transparent with great color, especially given their size. The Kunzites extend up approximately 2.5 cm and the alrger are 1cm thick. Highly aesthetic and unusual matrix Kunzite.
