Three perfect 'bow-tie' crystal groups of Stilbite rising up off the matrix. Stilbite bow-ties are ususally found flat on the matrix and to have 3 isolated groups that stand up on end like this creates a striking specimen. Undamaged.

Cluster of Pyrite crystals with a main crystal 5.5cm wide. This was the best piece out of a small lot of these unusually shaped crystals that Scott Werschky brought into the country about 10-15 years ago. No matrix, nothing but solid Pyrite crystals.


T232 - Lazulite, Siderite, Apatite $ 3000
Rapid Creek, Yukon, Canada
large cabinet - 20.5 x 13 x 3 cm


Lazulite, Siderite, Apatite from Rapid Creek, Yukon, Canada [db_pics/pics/t232a.jpg] Lazulite, Siderite, Apatite from Rapid Creek, Yukon, Canada [db_pics/pics/t232b.jpg] Lazulite, Siderite, Apatite from Rapid Creek, Yukon, Canada [db_pics/pics/t232c.jpg] Lazulite, Siderite, Apatite from Rapid Creek, Yukon, Canada [db_pics/pics/t232d.jpg]

Large flat piece of ironstone with front face loaded with crystals. Blue Lazulite, tan Siderite, and white Apatite. Many pieces only have the Lazulite and Siderite which can leave them darker in appearance. The numerous white Apatites lighten up this specimen, along with the well dispersed, isolated Lazulites. This is easily the best of a large lot of these I obtained over 15 years ago and I'm posting it now for the first time ever.

Large floater group of translucent light purple/grey Fluorite with yellow Barite crystals. This is a self collected specimen dating back about 15 years. I openned a large crystal lined tube, and filling the tube were a number of fully crystallized floaters which I was able to extract relatively undamaged. The cubes are about 2cm across and are translucent. Crystals on all sides, but most on the front with more Barite on the bottom. Damage free except for one crystal, and one of my largest pieces from the find.
