I like rocks, always have. I have been a Goldsmith for about 12 years, and a glassblower for about 4.
Nature is where I feel the most "at home" and I run away to the woods whenever I can. I like books too!

Q42-TYXQuartz (Var: Amethyst) : SiO2, Quartz (Var: Citrine) : SiO2

Multiple photos available
Kremnica, Žiar nad Hronom Co., Banská Bystrica Region, Slovakia

Dimensions: 6.6 cm x 5.5 cm x 3.5 cm

6.6 x 5.5 x 3.5 cm. A rare and important combination quartz specimen from one of the oldest mining districts in Europe, Kremnica, Slovakia. Mining records go back to the 9th Century for the rich gold deposits. This is a striking and beautiful mounded specimen of discrete, glassy amethyst crystals with a pretty purple blush set amongst smaller, rich golden-amber citrine crystals. The crowning glory amethyst tower is 1.8 cm tall. Pristine. Undoubtedly old material, as these were highly desired in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Ex Bally Museum (Switzerland) and Dave Bristol Collections.

XDD-J8PQuartz (Var: Amethyst) : SiO2, Quartz (Var: Smoky Quartz) : SiO2

Multiple photos available
Little Pipestone District, Jefferson Co., Montana, USA

Dimensions: 7.7 cm x 4.5 cm x 4 cm

7.7 x 4.5 x 4.0 cm. A fabulous, old-time Montana specimen from the Richard Hauck Quartz Collection. Multiple, gemmy amethyst scepters with vivid color, are very aesthetically perched atop a glassy, stepped-faced, opaque smoky quartz crystal. The scepters are superb, pristine, and doubly terminated. This piece is from the very uncommon Little Pipestone District of Jefferson County. The George English label dates the piece to 1899-1901. The Art Mongomery label dates to 1936.

J2J-0APQuartz (Var: Smoky Quartz) : SiO2, Quartz (Var: Amethyst) : SiO2

Shaw and Esrey's Quarry, Chester Township, Delaware Co., Pennsylvania, USA

Dimensions: 9.2 cm x 6.8 cm x 2 cm

9.2 x 6.8 x 2.0 cm. A surreal shard-like quartz with amethyst protrusions, smoky body, and elegant form. Also, the locality is interesting. We are pretty sure the label is from the 1800s. A fine piece of course, regardless of locale, but the locality is a bonus for a Pennsylvania collector! Ex. Richard Hauck Collection. Photo of the Day - 11th Sep 2008

444-RTNBeryl : Be3Al2(Si6O18)

Portland, Middlesex Co., Connecticut, USA

Dimensions: 5.4 cm x 4.1 cm x 3.1 cm

5.4 x 4.1 x 3.1 cm. These Connecticut beryls have gotten so hard to obtain, particularly in this size and quality! This is a superb old-timer! It is a fat, chunky, DOUBLY-TERMINATED, 130-gram crystal that is complete all the way around and undamaged. It is translucent-to-transparent (so many are opaque), and you can see will into the wonderful top termination. The faces are razor-sharp, and lustrous. Ex. Elling collection.

Matacana Mine, Mun. de Gachalá, Guavió-Guatéque Mining District, Cundinamarca Department, Colombia

Dimensions: 1.4 cm x 1.3 cm x 0.8 cm

Even with its small size, the specimen is exceptional due the perfect preservation of the fossil. We must consider that fossilization by Emerald, recently introduced, is quite extraordinary.
