Watch Video

One single sparkling green crystal of pargasite is perched on a snow-white matrix of just the right proportion. The perfect composition with a dramatic contrast catches the eye immediately! The crystal itself shows a fantastic color that even exceeds that of the picture. Please watch the video for a better view! We were lucky to get this piece out of a collection with an older label that dates back to 2002. A nice piece of great luster, clarity and a remarkably bright green color!

AF14 - Quartz - 250€
Wolfskogel, Schwarzenbachtal, Zillertaler Alpen, Ahrntal, South Tyrol, Italy
Size: 6.8 x 6.6 x 3.5 cm
Watch Video

When it comes to composition, this piece is outstanding. Two doubly terminated quartz crystals of high luster and clarity are nicely perched on a pericline-matrix. The specimen is in perfect condition. The largest main crystal has a length of 5.4 cm. All in all this is a remarkable piece with no downsides.

RR21 - Fluorite - 1200€
Camissinone Mine, Zogno, Brembana Valley, Bergamo Province, Lombardy, Italy
Size: 6.5 x 5.4 x 2.7 cm
Watch Video

A perfect floater, etched all around and completely flawless. The crystal is mainly colorless with a soothing purple core. Inside the crystal you can see small spots of yellow matrix that add some interesting color-effect. All in all this is a piece of simple beauty, perfectly shaped by mother nature and totally unblemished.

RK74 - Gold - 5850€
Verespatak, Transsylvania, Romania
Size: 5.3 x 3.9 x 2.5 cm
Watch Video

This gold is from a very old find. We have a label that dates to 1958, but the specimen itself could even be older. Very appealing, looming like a sculpture, this remarkable piece is a cleft specimen with even some crystallized calcite visible. The gold is very shiny and emerges from the matrix on all sides, which adds a distinct 3-dimensional character. Very nice and rare from this classic locale!

AB16 - Garnet - 370€
Granatkogel, Obergurgl, Ötztal, Nordtirol, Austria
Size: 15.6 x 8.9 x 3.1 cm
Watch Video

This is a very good garnet from Tyrol! A large number of single isolated almandine crystals are well grown on a silvery mica-schist matrix that makes for a great contrast to the dark, dark red garnet crystals! Very good in person!

RR10 - Atacamite - 980€
Lily Mine, Pisco Umay, Ica Department, Peru
Size: 5 x 3.5 x 4.8 cm
Watch Video

Only recently found in 2014, this is an incredible piece of attacamite on matrix. The whole piece is a sparkling fireworks. Attacamite crystals as well as accompanying quartz are highly lustrous and of brilliant quality. Green malachite adds some color and even improves the wonderful aesthetics of this fine specimen. The attacamite cluster itself with crystals of up to 1 cm in length is in excellent condition and utterly attractive. To be honest, this piece is even better in person!

FA111 - Hematite with Rutile - 840€
Cavradi, Val Curnera, Tujetsch, Graubünden, Switzerland
Size: 6.1 x 3.7 x 3 cm
Watch Video

A brilliant combination of thick and lustrous hematite with small rutile scattered about its surface, all perched on a glassy quartz crystal. While the quartz itself might not be quite perfect at the back, it is doubly terminated and shows a beautiful termination at the bottom of the specimen. I love this kind of combination especially on such a beautiful specimen of sharp contrast and good quality.

MG19 - Liddicoatite - 700€
Ampanivana pegmatite, Betafo District, Vakinankaratra Region, Antananarivo Province, Madagascar
Size: 5.8 x 3.8 x 3.7 cm
Watch Video

Like two lovers these liddicoatite crystals are embracing one another on an elegant piece of grey matrix. The green and red colored crystals are in good condition and of exceptional aesthetics. A nice eye-catcher for any showcase!
