This is a very nice crystal of albite with a great shape, very good luster and gemminess.
WOW, what a beautiful specimen! Many fluorites of beautiful color are well situated on the quartz matrix of yellowish color! The crystals have a size up to 1.2 cm on edge, showing some great phantoms! The dramatic crack in the matrix makes a unique appearance to this specimen, and it is completely stable!
This is an amazing group of galena with high quality. Most of the specimens I have seen coming out from Russia are heavily damaged, or just of lower quality. This specimen is perfect all around, without any damage of importance. Also the bottom side is crystallized with some small crystals of calcite. The calcites in between look very nice, giving the specimen a particular character. It is very 3-dimensional in person, what is not very good visible on the pictures.
This fluorite is very glassy in person, what is not very good visible on the pictures. The luster is beautiful and the edges of the crystal have a length of 2,1cm. It is perfect all around and also well crystalized at the back. Over all this is a marvelous specimen in a great condition and I was very happy to get such a good piece.
Another speicmen in combination with quartz. Very special in person!
A very good hematite well situated on a matrix consisting of many crystals of small adularia. Some chlorite is attached to the specimen what is typical for this locale. The chlorite stands out very strong on the photo but the crystal is much more clear in person.
Dal'negorsk delivered a bright viarity of different calcites. In my opinion this crystal is one of the most beautiful specimens, in question of it's shape. The second generation of smaller crystals are showing a very sharp termination with many stripes in it, what looks very lovely in person. It is a floater all around without any damage.
Another beautiful piece in combination with quartz! The quartz shows a white layer of matrix on the surface and looks gorgeous in person! The fluorite has a beautiful color, which is not as dark as shown on the video! The piece is in a very good condition, just one of the crystlas pinnting to the back has a cleave, which is also very good visible on the photo.
This is a group of schorl in combination with very nice crystals of quartz and feldspar! The white crystals of feldspar are sitting on the black schorl what makes a very good contrast to this specimen. Over all, it is in a very good condition with just minor damage on some of the smaller side crystals what is very hard visible with the eyes. It is very 3-dimensional in person what is hard to show on pictures. Much better in person!
A beautiful specimen of highly lustrous fluorites with great color and very nice phantoms. It is in combiantin with small quartz and white barite.
What a stunning twin from the Elmwood Mine! This crystal has a beautiful shape, is very gemmy with a deep cognac color and great luster. The specimen is well-crystallized all around and at the base it is grown into some matrix. It is definitely a perfect fit for all advanced collectores, who are looking for a very good specimen from this mine. Very 3-dimensional and much better in person!
