Massive Ajo Copper with a row of tall crystals to 13cm. This formed in a thin seam and has a uniform thickness throughout the specimen. This was in an old collection I bought and based on the other minerals in the collection, I estimate it's from the 1970s or 1980s.

Large water clear Quartz crystal from this new and now famous Quartz locality in Tanzania. Like many crystals from this mine, it has water clear transparency and lots of interesting and unusual growth patterns. It is priced so low for what it is because of a shallow ding on one back termination face. If you can live with that, it's a large and impressive crystal for what would otherwise be a four figure price.
