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!

Doubly terminated, rather large and of lustrous, transparent quality, this quartz specimen is quite striking for the locale. Smaller side crystals are sitting directly at the main body, enhancing the overall aesthetics of this piece. Some accessory pericline at the bottom supports the already striking lower termination. The top is somehow chipped but which does not strike the eye easily. A great quartz of dominant and attractive appearance!

A 3-dimensional cluster of transparent, elongated quartz crystals with its very own distinguished chaotic beauty. As a complete floater there is no actual damage to be found here. Even at very close view only one or two small chips are visible. The unique shape and outline these nested, lustrous crystals offer is highly aesthetic and even better in person that on the picture. Strikingly pure and pristine!

A beautifully developed single pyrite crystal on a matrix of glassy white quartz and some sharp metallic tetrahedrite at the lower back. The unchallanged main attraction here is the pyrite, measuring 2.8 cm on edge. It shows wonderful bevelled edges, distinct striations and a great golden luster. The backside is studded with small, very sharp tetrahedrite crystals. There is no damage on the main crystal, only a small crack at the side. A nice miniature that especially lives from the relatively large end especially well developed pyrite crystal.

This group of smoky quartz shows a perfect composition, with a lustrous and clear main crystal at the back and a number of accompanying side-crystals of matching quality. Nice details are some little colorless quartz crystals at the terminal faces of the main smoky quartz. The specimen is crystallized even at the bottom und thus literally marvelous all around!
