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. The Quartz crystal is very transparent and bright, high quality (way better than photos). There is a smaller Quartz attached to the Calcite crystal too.

Large 3cm black Spinel crystal on matrix with other smaller Spinel crystals. This is an old specimen from a collection from the 1960s and 70s, and unfortunately there was no  locality information available. I believe it to be from an old, lost locality in Riverside Co. It occurs with Chlorite and appears to have been partially etched from carbonate rock. It rates as a significant California Spinel. Undamaged.

Cluster of translucent yellow Prehnite crystals on Graphite. Such yellow Prehnites have come from Merelani sporadically over the years, but never before in the quality that has been found in the last year.
