Amethyst crystal cluster from the diggings in the Kingston Mountains of eastern California. Most Amethyst from this locality have alot of white Quartz over the purple or are only transluscent and of medium purple color. The very best (in my opinion) are of the style of this specimen, with clear transparent Quartz over deep purple Amethyst. Fine and undamaged.

Elongated Calcite crysals associated with sky blue Barite crystals. This is an old specimen and though there are a couple missing Calcite crystals, it's in great condition overall and the main Calcite crystals are perfect and 3cm tall.

Large, chunky Hematite crystal with an uncommon psuedocubic form. Great luster with parallel surface striations. This is an old specimen from a collection dating back to the 60s and 70s. It came without precise locality information, but I suspect it is from the Casa de Pedra mine in Congonhas, Minas Gerais. It's complete all around with some indentations from other crystals on top near the back, but remarkably pristine with only a couple small nicks. Even the bottom is rehealed. Weighs 2 pounds and 14 ounces!

This is a large cluster of nothing but Grossular garnet crystals. The crystals are an amber/yellow color and transluscent to transparent. Average crystal size is about 5mm with some crystals approaching 1cm. A good sized cluster for the find. There are a few contacts but the majority is clean undamaged crystals. .

Outstanding 3.6cm 'Herkimer Diamond' Quartz crystal on Calcite. Quartz on Calcite are uncommon for the locality, unfortunatley this one came off the Calcite and has been reattached.
