  • This specimen is a singly terminated very dark green tourmaline crystal with a single herderite crystal on the termination and several around the base. The old A. Seibel label states "schorl" but because it is, in fact, dark green in strong light, I think it could be elbaite. The herderite crystals are all fairly sharp, beigey coloured crystals. Very nice! t

    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.

  • This mound of bladed, white albite crystals has grayish, well formed quartz crystals protruding from it. At the center-right are several topaz crystals, one being much larger than the others. It is 27mm long and 17mm wide with excellent faces. The topaz crystals are a very light, sherry colour. The other topaz crystals are similar but smaller! Nice example from this famous pegmatite region!
