Thin matrix covered with bright green garnet crystals. The garnets are over 1cm in size and many are transparent. This is a great example out of an old collection with good coverage of crystals on a thin flat matrix. Most crystals are good though some damaged crystals keep the price much lower than it otherwise would be.

Gemmy blades of purple Axinite associated with Albite crystals on matrix from the classic European locality once considered the source of the finest Axinites in the world (now surpassed by some specimens from the Urals and California) though still highly treasured. Some fo the crystals are pure purple and gemmy, some show green Chlorite, there is also chlorite coating parts fo the matrix. Crystals reach 2cm in size and are in great condition except for the far right edge where it appears the specimen broke away from the host rock.

Namalulu, Tanzania
large cabinet - 21 x 19 x 7 cm

New find of crystallized moonstone from Tanzania. Individual crystals to 2cm that display a satiny blue color when turned under lighting. This 'Schiller effect' of color is seen at different angles on the different crystals and was therefore not possible to catch in still photos and these are therefore more colorful and attractive in person. Moonstone crystals are rare! Large, relatively flat crystal covered specimen. Biggest of lot with good blue on crystals.

Aesthetic specimen of Wulfenite crystals on a vuggy Limonite matrix. This piece is special because it has both typical translucent Butterscotch colored crystals, and smaller gem crystals.

Shaft 1, Bou Azzer, Anti-Atlas Mtns., Morocco
small cabinet - 5.5 x 5 x 5 cm

Hexagonal platy crystals of irridescent Covellite on a Quartz crystal covered matrix. While larger foliated masses of Covellite crystals are more commonly seen, my favorite type from the locality are those such as this specimen with the individual crystals standing up on a bed of Quartz crystals.
