Fragile! I hardly dare looking at this piece. Not just for fear of breaking these thin crystals but also out of pure humility. It is almost unbelievable that these two rutile crystals including the fine needles that are grown all over them have never been broken in the process of the recovery. Both main crystals are perfectly intact, well terminated and aesthetically perched on a fitting piece of siderite-matrix. Please also watch our video for a better impression of this pieces beauty!

This is completely marvellous in person! It is a floater specimen with absolutely no damage at all!
Both front and backside show lovely structured hematite petals to the hundreds which creates a vivid sparkling effect. Most of the metallic faces show some chloritization but not as much as to prevent the luster from shining! Some white adularia near the bottom adds a nice contrast without taking away from the classy appearance of this piece.
I love it and you will love it too!

What a beautiful specimen of galena! The crystals have a size up to 3.5cm and are very lustrous. The calcites at the bottom give the piece a very good contrast and a great aesthetics. All the crystals are in a very good condition and without any damage of influence. It is very 3-dimensional in person!

A flash of pure aesthetics! Like a black sun with golden beams this fantastic specimen is more than just impressive. The massive core of hematite radiates fragile rutile needles to all sides in typical 60° agles. This piece is out of a smaller find from two years ago. Only few specimens arrive at the market these last years, so we are happy to present such a masterpiece.The whole piece is perfect all around and simply beautiful. Very dominant on a showcase shelf, it appears to be on fire as it is highly sparkling all around. An outstandingly brilliant piece of Brazilian rutile!Please note: Due to its fragility hand delivery is a must at this specimen. Please contact us, so we can arrange a meeting!

Three large, pale green fluorite cubes with elegantly modified edges are perched on a contrasting white matrix that is in fact a massive plate of octahedral fluorite, coved in calcite, which adds a nice winter-landscape-look. The crystals are completely transparent with smooth, lustrous surfaces that allow a look straight down to the matrix. A piece of great aesthetics that is largely free of damage, save for some peripheral issues where it was worked out of the pocket. A very charming piece of good cabinet size.

This lovely miniature of demantoid, the green variety of andradite, is from the famous finds Antetezambato Demantoid-Topazolite Mine that produced a number of top rated specimens for the species! As a floater this one is nicely crystallized all around but the most dominant crystals are for sure at the front with a main crystal reaching 1.1 cm in diameter. The garnet is all gemmy with distinct green color. There are some contacts around the lower end but aside of that the piece is in very best condition!

A beautiful near-perfect doubly terminated quartz crystal of best quality! It shows brilliant luster on all sides, a beautiful structure and some nice inclusions that make this piece even more interesting. While you see a pointed termination at the top the bottom is much more irregular but completely crystallized all the same. This is a highly appealing quartz specimen from the uncommon locale Greina Pass as you can very well see in our video!

A dominant, massy smoky quartz crystal of excellent quality that would attract attention in any collection. Especially the main view shows superb luster and a beautifully structured surface through wich the observer can see the stunningly limpid inside of the crystal. Some internal cracks are typical for a crystal this size and even add some spice to an otherwise straight and classy crystal. Mentioning some minuscule wear is beside the point on a great piece like this. A shiny rocket, quietly waiting to launch!

The unusual color combination of this aesthetic fluorite specimen is quite intriguing especially when lit from the back which brings out the intensive purple phantoms that rest inside these honey-yellow fluorite cubes. This is a formation of several stacked cubes of fine translucent quality. The sides and bottom are contacted but not broken. There is minimal edgewear present but nothing really bothering. A lovely piece of outstanding color!

This is a classic piece of adularia or K-feldspar from Mörchnerkar, better known for its superb hematite and adularia specimens. The large main adularia sits on a matrix-like cluster of smaller crystals, encrusted with rust-red limonite. The adularia is translucent to even transparent and of fantastic luster at the front. Very attractive and practically a floater with only a small contact at the bottom.

A three-dimensional landscape of towering adularia, lustrous smoky quartz and some plain white pericline! This Alpine arrangement of quartz and feldspar is gorgeous in its very own untamed, rough way. It has some peripheral contacts but is overall in surprisingly well condition. Even the underside is completely covered in adularia and smoky quartz micro-crystals! Very nice in person and full of beautiful details!

One wonderful pink tourmaline of perfectly gemmy quality is prominently sitting on a matrix of quartz, mica and cleavelandite. The tourmaline with a diameter of 2.7 cm is free of any scratch, but has a small contact at the back. Especially nice about this specimen is the elegant contrast of pink, light blue and white, perfectly composed with just the right proportions. I just love the vivid termination, pointing perfectly to the front. A superb and rare piece of tourmaline on matrix from the pegmatites of Burma.
