Another "screwdriver" of comparable quality but slightly smaller. The crystal is mostly black but strikingly green at the termination. It's interesting and astounding to see the typical triangular shape of a tourmaline broken down to its mere outlines. The crystal is free of any damage all around.

Two flawless, beautifully grown pink fluorite crystals of remarkable size are well centered on a white quartz and adularia matrix. The larger fluorite is absolutely striking with 2.6 cm on edge and a very intensive pink color that shines even in low light. The crystal quality is top! At some spots you can see right through to the bottom which even for Zinggenstock standars is extremely rare! There is no downside at all on this piece and also the second crystal is perfect in any respect.
Brilliant on the picture, even better in person!

What a unique curiosity! A plate of hematite is completetly intergrown inside this quartz. My first thought was, this must be from the Cavradi area, but it is coming from South Tyrol, what astounded me even more. The hematite is very good visible from the front side, as the quartz has a very good quality with almost no inclusions or cracks inside! Just have a look at the video, it speaks for itself!

Two adularia crystals are grown together to a quite impressive floater-piece of good quality here. The crystals are glassy and show very nice luster.

This thumbnail shows utter brilliance, a doubly terminated amethyst crystal, water clear and on a nice quartz matrix. The amethyst is especially sharp and virtually free of any kind of imperfections, save for one incredibly small chip that is, if at all, visible only from the backside. The amethysts surface is highly lustrous on 360°. The supporting quartz matrix shows good luster and is covered in some iron-oxide to provide contrast. All in all this is a real marvel of highest quality!
