Old Mashamba West specimen with the large sized Cobaltian Calcite crystals, formerly from Gilbert Gauthier stock. There is one damaged crystal on the bottom edge, otherwise all are perfect. There are small black inclusions in the crystals, each having one or two. Old, hard to find specimen.


T229 - Stilbite $ 480

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.

Gem quality golden brown crystal complete all around. In excellent condition for this locality, with only some minor edge chipping. Fully transparent internally, so much so you see right through it and some of what looks like inclusions in the photos are really just shadows from some irregular surface areas on the lower backside of the crystal.

Transparent purple/yellow Kunzite crystal with a sharpness of form not typical for the species. Uniform prism faces and nice flat termination faces.

Two Aquamarine crystals grown on either side of a thin matrix of mica and feldspar. The crystals are gemmy with a good medium blue color and each are terminated on one end. Uncommon locality, and Mindat only has one Aqua pictured from this locality.

Cluster of thick rhombs of red Rhodochrosite. This is from a recent find and we are more accustomed to seeing small wafer-like, twin Rhodo crystals from here, rather than these large, thick crystals. Crystals reach 2.5cm wide. Undamaged with some etched areas, mostly on the backside.
