Glassy bi-color crystal, blue base with a yellow termination. This crystal has superb luster and unusually uniform shape, retaining an even 8mm thickness all the way from the base to the termination. The yellow zone is facet grade and the blue zone, while having some internal fractures, is still mostly transparent - you can read through most of the crystal. Just a few tiny, trivial nicks otherwise totally undamaged. This is one of, if not the best of these yellow/blue bi-color crystals I have ever seen.

Cluster of thick Pyrargyrite crystals, complete all around. Four main crystals rise up to form the cluster, with smaller crystals at the base. This is from the Wolfgang Pohl collection with a label that indicates it was acquired at the 1985 Munich show for $680. Translucent to transparent cherry red when backlit. I have backlit one photo to show the color, but when held in the hand and backlit, the whole piece lights up, much better than the photo.

Light pink gem crystal in the rare dihexagonal dipyramid form. This is one of 3 such crystals obtained by Frank Melanson in 2011. This crystal (and one of the other two) have a rounded, psuedo-isometric appearance, looking similar in form to a garnet crystal.  For more information about these odd crystals, see the article here.
