Divergent sprays of Azurite crystals on a bit of white matrix. These are the uncommon GEM Azurites from Tsumeb that show great color and transparency when backlit.  Good pointed termination on most crystals.  A few crystals have ragged, unterminated ends but these are natural and not damaged. A rare old treasure.

Highly aesthetic Tsumeb Dioptase, decidedly more colorful than most with the presence of the baby blue Plancheite spheres. The Dioptase occurs as both small drusy crystals coating Calcite rhombs and larger, highly lustrous crystals to 1.8cm.

Dioptase crystals to 1cm with larger, translucent Calcite crytals to 1.5cm Some damage present but in overall good condition. Typical Tsumeb Dioptase/Calcite specimens have white, rhombic Calcite. This one is a little different with translucent to transparent scalenohedral Calcite crystals.

Bright and transparent Quartz crystal with inclusions of Brookite crystals. This is an excellent example with long Brookite crystals, some of which are fully included in the Quartz and others that partially extend out of the Quartz. The central Brookite extends from the base of the Quartz right up the middle to the very tip of the Quartz! The Quartz is also mostly recrystallized on the base. Great crystal!!

Gemmy single Spessartine crystal from recents finds in Nigeria. The crystal is complete and transparent with a well saturated red/orange color. Most in the lot had contacts, this one is good all around.

Double-terminated Stilbite on a matrix of drusy Quartz crystals. This is not your average Stilbite, with much better quality and presence than most. The crystal has a well saturated peach coloration and is 5.5cm tall with smaller crystals sticking out the sides. Stands up dramatically on the Quartz for great display. Good from all sides and undamaged. A really good one!!

Transparent Peridot crystal with great green color and a wonderful, slightly etched surface. Though small, this crystal instantly stood out from the many other typical Peridot crystals in a parcel I was reviewing due to it's brightness, color, and almost polished looking surface luster.
