Terminated single gem crystal of Chrome Tourmaline which is a chromium and vanadium rich Dravite. Complete all around with deep emerald green coloration in the upper half and a more olive green in the lower half. Fantastic color and highly gemmy. Undamaged except for a tiny nick on the upper right side. One narrow face on the left side has etched, stepped growth patterns. From a spectacular pocket opened in 2016.

Large single crystal likely from the Milpillas Mine. This was shipped to me directly from Mexico from a miner who claimed it was from Sierra Rica, however it looks more like a Milpillas Mine crystal. At any rate, it's a big, showy single crystal crystallized on all sides, front and back, with some bits of matrix intergrown in areas.

'Moonstone' on Aegerine from Patricia Mine, Delicias, Chihuahua, Mexico [db_pics/pics/d118c.jpg]

Cluster of Feldspar crystals with an irridescent blue on the narrow faces grown around a single black Aegerine crystal. Reminds me of a guitar. Very few localities produce true moonstone crystals.

Unusual specimen of Mottramite that is either covering Quartz crystals or pseudomorphed after Quartz crystals. There is Quartz at the base of the specimen, but when I look closely at the bottoms of the crystals at the edge, I can see no Quartz in the cores, which leads me to believe the Quartz has been pseudomorphed to Mottramite.
