A killer azurite from the Milpillas Mine! This dark and mysterious crystal is 4.4 cm long and 2.2 cm in diameter, sitting on a small white piece of matrix. The azurite is sharply defined, a doubly terminated crystal of excellent luster and surface structure. The inside is very dark but with some gemmy patches near the surface that are sparkling indigo blue in direct illumination! The specimen is in very good condition. It has only one very small chip worth mentioning on the upper termination but is apart from that perfect and really a mesmerizing specimen!
This rare specimen features a glassy and colorful tourmaline that’s grown on a single quartz crystal. The quartz is slightly smoky and shows great translucent quality. The bottom is sawn but all around its natural and unharmed! The tourmaline on the other hand is all perfect and brilliant! With pink, apple-green and again pink towards the termination, it is beautifully colored and absolutely gemmy! The termination is sharply defined and highly lustrous as is the rest of the crystal. Just perfect! I love the overall aesthetics that is very well balanced and greatly emphasizes the tourmaline! Ex Fabian Wildfang collection
