Gem quality blue Apatite crystal from a limited find with no recent production. Most found had blotches of frosted surface luster and a melted-looking form. This crystal is one of the best, if not the best, thumbnail from the find with zero amount of frosted luster - glassy all over.

Single blue Elbaite with a couple shorter sidecar crystals. Best of a parcel I received years ago, from a pocket that produced crystals of fine blue color. Put this up against other indicolites and you will see how good the blue is as most other indicolites will be more blue/green in color.

Transparent gem quality Apatite crystal rising out of a matrix of Calcite, limonite, chalcedony, and magnetite. Superb quality crystal for locality AND on matrix (most are loose single crystals). Crystal extends 1.5 out of matrix, but is at least a 2cm crystal that could further be revealed with more trimming. There are another 2 gem crystals attached to the lower left.
