A combination of very sharp quartz crystal with attached hematite on a matrix that is coverend in adularia! The matrix is a complete floater that shows beautiful crystallizations of white adularia and metallic black hematite which makes for a fantastic contrast! The three main quartz crystals are clear and almost colorless with only a slight smoky tinge. Especially the larger crystal has a beautiful cover of hematite, but not too much to completely drown it. Very aesthetic in person!

While the general shape of this calcite is very typical for the locale, this is definitely one of the best crystals we have seen from there. The dagger-shaped elongated calcite is free of damage and beautifully imposing for its 3-dimensional form. The color is a greyish beige that varies throughout the crystal. With a size of almost 15 cm this is an outstanding and attractive specimen.

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.
