Large, complete single crystal. Well crystallized on both sides and shows good iridescence. This is old material from the collection of longtime African dealer Rob Smith. If you search Mindat photos for the locality, all you will find are millimeter sized crystals.

New find of chatoyant Sugilite. Prized Sugilite specimens were first those with small crystals, then later came specimens with fibrous crystals - and now this style, the first I've ever seen like it. This is a solid seam of fibrous, chatoyant Sugilite, reportedly the best quality (though not the biggest) out of only about 5 significant pieces found. A rare and unusual specimen, but could you imagine cat's-eye Sugilite cabachons? Weighs 55.6 grams.

Unique thumbnail specimen of star-shaped Mimetite with attached Malachite. Fully crystallized all around with only one tiny point of contact on the backside.
