What a beautiful Titanite! While it is very hard to find any titanites on matrix, this crystals is perfectly situated on it. It has a very good color and shape. The whole specimen is free of any damage.
This is a very sweet rubellite of intense red color and a very fine and lovely termination! One small damage is present, but this can be turned to the back!
This large and perfect calcite crystal never fails to impress. Its rather interesting modification, the harmonious golden color as well as the sparkling white matrix it rests upon are earning it a closer look full of admiration. Specimens like this from the Altai Mountains in Kazakhstan are hard to come by these days, especially if you are looking for great quality and aesthetics. This calcite shows both and thus might just be the perfect choice for your showcase!
Fluorite specimens from the famous Austrian Reiterkluft are not available on the market for many years. Its fantastic color and shape created a demand, the rare findings could not meet by far. Still, we were fortunate enough to lay hands on this one very attractive specimen. As you can see in the picture, the deep purple color is outstanding and provides a wonderful contrast to the white matrix. The matrix itself is a floater in perfect condition, with small quartz and calcite crystals on it. The fluorite crystal has a small contact at the bottom and is apart from that perfect. Very aesthetic and a real eye-catcher!
An impressive pyrite crystal with a lovely rust-brown patina that is completely unharmed on all sides. As a floater, this remarkable specimen shows no contact, no damage and no abrasion of any kind. Seldomly have I seen a piece of comparable size and quality alike. Simply put: perfect!
Characteristic smoky clouds inside this "trident" quartz scepter unmistakably mark it as a piece from Brandberg Area. The shape of this smoky quartz is absolutely unusual, three intergrown crystals with chisel-point terminations tapering to a single narrow pedestal. Some edgewear to the terminations is evident but overall this piece is in well condition. A highly attractive and unusually aesthetic smoky quartz specimen from Brandberg.
This doubly-terminated, clear, greenish yellow heliodor shows the typical etching of classic Volodarsk specimens. It is a superb example of perfection showing not a single scratch or internal crack. An absolutely fantastic piece that has no downsides whatsoever.
Like a waterdrop, splashing on solid rock, frozen in time. This hyalite is absolutely water-clear, highly lustrous and simply beautiful. It is perched on a piece of matrix of just the right proportion and good contrast. At closer look you will find some tiny chips here - the reason for the low price - but which are actually hard to notice due to the amorphous structure of totally limpid opal. Unusual, dashy and lovely in person.
Have you ever seen adularia in a scalenohedral shape? Well, we have. This crystal of excellent quality perfectly sits on a 3-dimensional matrix that is coverd in smaller sparkling crystals. Clear, sharp and free of damage this adularia specimen is a truly unusual piece of exceptional aesthetics!
This is the "S" for Saphira and Silver! (or maybe a Dollar-sign. Or if your name is Sarah, well so be it). The silver is a floater and completely free of any damage. It is depicted in the book "Peru - paradise of minerals" as a showpiece for the locale. The unusual shape is just striking in person and renders this piece an true masterpiece who's impact utterly defies the modest size. Surprising, beautiful and outstandingly elegant!
I especially like the striking outline this piece provides. The main crystal is accompanied by smaller side crystals of matching quality, glassy and lustrous. The surface is in fact something unusual here. As you can see in the video, the lustrous crystal faces are speckled with amorphous dull shapes, which reminds me of a world map with continents and oceans. The bottom of this specimen is contacted but not broken. Aside of some tiny edgewear this piece is in excellent condition. A lovely piece of appealing charm!
This adularia specimen is especially lustrous and translucent, at some corners even transparent. It is a 360° floater with some matrix visible, accompanied by water-clear quartz, small hematite and even tiny traces of rutile, making this a typical Alpine adularia specimen. Being free of damage and stuffed with nice little details, this is a piece worth collecting!
