  • Here is an old classic! This thick plate of layered rock has two superb topaz crystals on the top amongst many colourless quartz crystals. The topaz crystals are a very light yellowish colour which makes them easy to see amongst the quartz. Very nice!

  • Meikle Mine
  • Elko
    Nevada, USA
  • This is a world class specimen of barite! Several orangey-yellow barite crystals are aesthetically assembled on a bladed calcite crystal base. The crystals are thick-bladed and highly lustrous. The terminations are multiple terminations, as we often see with this group of minerals. The Meikle Mine is famous for large cavities(I'm talking 50-100 feet) lined with these types of calcite and occasional areas of excellent barite crystals, like this. Not a spec of damage! Difficult to find a better specimen!

  • A dense mass of a mixture of cobalt and nickel arsenides with annabergite and erythrite present all around. The tag that accompanies the specimen states, simply "Cobalt" but "Chambers-Ferland" is clearly written on the side of the specimen.
