QUARTZ29 - Quartz Var. Amethyst scepters
$ 125.00
SOLD
Karur, Chennai, Southern India
miniature - 4.8 x 2.6 x 2.5 cm

This unusual formation of Quartz consists of many Amethyst Scepters crowded together on a drusy white quartz matrix. The Quartz is unusually bright with bold color saturation and even some golden needle inclusions (probably rutile). It is pristine, with only a tiny missing crystal top on the lower right side (very hard to see, but pictued nonetheless). A special piece from southern India.

Quartz Var. Amethyst with Prehnite from Goboboseb Mtns. Brandberg Dist. Erongo Region, Namibia [db_pics/pics/quartz30a.jpg] Quartz Var. Amethyst with Prehnite from Goboboseb Mtns. Brandberg Dist. Erongo Region, Namibia [db_pics/pics/quartz30b.jpg]



QUARTZ30 - Quartz Var. Amethyst with Prehnite
$ 295.00
SOLD
Goboboseb Mtns. Brandberg Dist. Erongo Region, Namibia
small cabinet - 7.3 x 2.4 x 2.2 cm

This was found in Namibia in the last two months. It is super sharp and bright. There are no dings of any kind. The color is rich, the surface is bright, and there is a small rosette of prehnite on the side. I "hot-handed," this from the guys who bought it at the mine, early at the Munich show. This crystal has everything I look for from this locality.

QUARTZ31 - Quartz Var. Amethyst with Prehnite
$ 265.00
SOLD
Goboboseb Mtns. Brandberg Dist. Erongo Region, Namibia
small cabinet - 7.1 x 3.1 x 3.0 cm

This Quartz shows a heavy association with lime green Prehnite. It has interesting internal "landscapes," and is nicely framed by the Prehnite, which only occasionally associates itself with Quartz at this location. The Quartz crystal is pristine. At the base is a smaller Quartz that has a minor contact where it attached to another crystal (barely noticeable).

Sivec Mt. Prilep, Republic of Macedonia

Rubies found at Sivec Mountain, have been mined for thousands of years. It is a marble mine in the Republic of Macedonia. These aren't on the market regularly, and when they are good with a dramatic color contrast from red to white, they are excellent examples of rubies in matrix. They are highly fluorescent, as shown in the second pic. The color is a richer red under incandescent light. this piece has some slight roughing to the left side, but is overall without damage.

Sivec Mt. Prilep, Republic of Macedonia
miniature - 4.3 x 2.35 x 1.3 cm

Rubies found at Sivec Mountain, have been mined for thousands of years. It is a marble mine in the Republic of Macedonia. These aren't on the market regularly, and when they are good with a dramatic color contrast from red to white, they are excellent examples of rubies in matrix. They are highly fluorescent, as shown in the third pic. The color is a richer red under incandescent light, vs. the daylight fluorescent pictured. There is mica embedded on the front side, and the right side is where it was attached to massive Corundum. The left side crystallized nicely and is slightly tabular.

CORUNDUM4 - Corundum Var. Ruby
SOLD
Sivec Mt. Prilep, Republic of Macedonia
miniature - 5.0 x 4.8 x 3.7 cm

Rubies found at Sivec Mountain, have been mined for thousands of years. It is a marble mine in the Republic of Macedonia. These aren't on the market regularly, and when they are good with a dramatic color contrast from red to white, they are excellent examples of rubies in matrix. 

This Ruby is a big floater that formed in marble. It's about the size of a large walnut. It is well crystallized and has great color, especially for its size. The second pic is under long wave fluorescent lighting. On the backside there is a spot where the color changed into blue/purple sapphire. It's in great condition, no dings. There may be a cleavage plane on a subcrystal face on the right side (pictured), it fits in with the overall form and may have happened during formation.
