Showy cluster of glassy green Apatite crystals. Bright and lively crystals. Undamaged. The camera does not pick up the green well and the brightness is not well conveyed in photos, thus this is way better in person than the photos may indicate.

Twinned Rhodochrosite crystal, a floater with no points of attachment. The color is just outstanding. This was recently released from the Charlie Key collection and it is clear he saved some good ones.

A small amount of minerals attached to one edge.
