C312 - Kunzite $ 750

Terminated pink Kunzite crystal with a smaller, double-terminated crystal attached to one side. The main crystal is also double-terminated, just not as nicely as the top termination. Complete and undamaged. Ex. Marty Zinn collection.


C313 - Aquamarine $ 2000
Padre Paraiso, Minas Gerais, Brazil
small cabinet - 7.3 x 3.5 x 2.7 cm


Aquamarine from Padre Paraiso, Minas Gerais, Brazil [db_pics/pics/c313a.jpg] Aquamarine from Padre Paraiso, Minas Gerais, Brazil [db_pics/pics/c313b.jpg] Aquamarine from Padre Paraiso, Minas Gerais, Brazil [db_pics/pics/c313c.jpg] Aquamarine from Padre Paraiso, Minas Gerais, Brazil [db_pics/pics/c313d.jpg]

Gorgeous and gemmy blue, blue/green aquamarine crystal with Muscovite attached to two sides. Undamaged with great glassy luster and highly transparent in the upper half. The prism faces have geometric growth features on the sides where the muscovite is present. The previous label shows a price of $3,800 - I got this in a 'fire sale' from a collector and am passing the savings on. Aside from some veils, the upper half is like transparent blue glass. Unfortunately the camera focuses right through the crystal to the back faces where the muscovite is present, making it look much worse in the photos as compared to when you hold it in your hand. Nicely beveled termination edges with a random, etched depression in one of the bevel faces.


C314 - Silver $ 200
Mina Vieja, Santa Eulalia, Chihuahua, Mexico
miniature - 3.6 x 2.2 x 1.6 cm
