Transparent Quartz crystal with included Rutile. I liked this one because of the reddish colored Rutile and the fact the Rutile is vertically oriented within the Quartz.

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.

A small amount of minerals attached to one edge.
