This beautiful matrix specimen hosting doubly terminated 8 x 3 x 2 cm

Neat cluster of bi-pyramidal pale greenish translucent glassy quartz crystals measuring 8.2 x 5.2 x 3.9 cm in size overall. The largest crystal measures 3.5 cm in size. This is completely crystallized all around 360 degrees. No damage; contacted on the base of the specimen. This is very choice for the species/locality. Ex Lloyd Tate collection.

This is a fine elbaite with several zones of color along with subsidiary, terminated, elbaite crystals. Pristine all around! Rich pink goes half way up the crystals, then gives way to a gemmy, light pastel green, which, in turn, adds a light pastel pink at the termination. I particularly like the complex, multiply-reflecting faces on the pyramidal terminations.  8.3 x 3.2 x 2.5 cm     Copyright © Rob Lavinsky & irocks.com

cuprite octohedra - siberia, russia This is a stunning, seemingly carved, Cuprite specimen with sharp faces and brilliant lustre. When backlit strongly, a gemmy red color permeates the outside few millimeters of the piece. This style (the thin red zone, and the bevelled edges) was rare from the mine's 2009-2010 production, amidst many more commonly found with no hint of red and sharper corners to the octohedra.
