Amazingly rich chrome green Dravite that grades up to a cat's-eye termination. You may recall similar but brown crystals that were found at this mine in quantity over the past couple years. This crystal is new (late 2017) and the only one like it that was available - we can only cross our fingers that more will be found.

Good sized pink Tanzanite crystal. Pinks are uncommon and this one is unique with a dark blue phantom line dividing the pink zone on top and a more purple/pink zone below. There is a chip on a back edge, but the termination is good and it can be display from the front undamaged. Pinks are hard to come by, but for some reason perfect undamaged pinks are even more rare, even the best known fine pink Tanzanite has a chip or two. A beautiful and uncommon Tanzanite. Weighs 21.1 grams.

Stunning bi-color Tanzanite crystal of yellow over vivid purple/blue. This crystal has superb luster and unusually uniform shape, retaining an even 7mm thickness all the way from the base to the termination. There are two chips, including one on the back termination, but the sheer pizzaz and dramatic coloration greatly overcomes it, it's that pretty and unique. Weighs 13 grams.
