  • Port au Port Peninsula
    Newfoundland, Canada
  • A huge cannon ball of a concretion from the amazing locality at Tea Cove. At this locality, pyrit concretions weather out of the shale underwater on the ocean floor and that is where you collect them! At low tide, you walk around in the water, reaching down and picking up the concretions. They, generally, have this nice brownish patina and often have barnacles attached to them, as though to attest that they were, in fact, in the ocean. You can see a couple of white barnacles on this one at the lower right. The crystals range in size and are curved, rounded cubes with minor modifications. Extra postage, please! :) Impressive large cabinet specimen!

There are numerous sharp, very transparent, colourless dawsonite crystals throughout the vug. Very difficult for me to photograph them with my set-up due to their clarity.

  • Wood County
    Ohio, USA
  • This is a handsome and interesting piece! It is a plate of white celestine crystals with a darker core that shows through in center of the terminations. Some people say that these types of celestine crystals from this locality are partially altered to strontianite. I'm not sure. Interestingly, each celestine crystal has a couple of few small calcite crystals in the center of the termination.
    As well the celestine is fluorescent, although not like in the photo. The crystals show as cramy white on the prisms while the terminations are a yellow colour. I could not seem to get hew fluorescent colours correct in the photo here. Excellent specimen from a classic mid-west locality.
