Double-terminated twinned Calcite crystal intergrown with highly lustrous Galena crystals all atop Sphalerite. There are some cleavage faces on one termination of the Calcite, but also nice pointed ends that make it not as noticable.

5cm Schorl crystal attached to twinned Feldspar crystals. The schorl has a great 6-faced termination and is undamaged. These are common enough but specimens like this in perfect condition that are complete floaters crystallized all around are much less so.

Long single, gemmy Tourmaline crystal with a cranberry pink color with a thin red zone at the termination. There is one professional repair about 2/3 up the crystal that is very hard to notice because it's in a zone that has more internal veils. No damage and with good luster, the color is fantastic.

Water clear Dolomite crystal with included and attached silvery blades of Hematite.

The large Dolomite is twinned and tabular, with the smaller crytals at the base a mixture of both untwinned rhombs and tabular twins. Showy and lustrous, complete all around. The right side is smooth and lustrous but appears to be a cleavage face. Comes mounted on a Lucite stand. Unusual, aesthetic specimen!
