Aquamarine-Collection, new: extraLapis No.40 BRAZIL

Last Updated: 6th Mar 2012

By Kuno Stoeckli

Update of my article:
New: Articles and photos in extraLapis No 40, August 2011
I am collector, artist (painter and carver of precious stones), born 1934 in Switzerland, living in Zurich
Name: Kuno Stoeckli, Language: german
I am a Mindat user with many photos of sites and minerals

My Website:

I created my website with iWeb, with hundreds of pictures: Beryls from my collection, objects in precious stones, paintings (since 1965) and aquatints and other copper plate printings.
Beryllsammlung 1 and 2 (Beryl-collection)
Bilder (Paintings 1965-1998 and 1999-2012)
Originalgrafik (Graphic arts)
Edelsteinobjekte/ Gems (Objects in precious stones)

Since 1984 I collect Aquamarines and other Beryls, most in cabinet size.
Today they are over 1000 selected specimens. It is a beautiful collection with some unique unparalleled pieces.
The Link "Miracle" shows a Quartz-Masterpiece, a perfect natural Cristal whitout parallel anywhere.
Did you see a similar cristal? When yes, let me now!
Thank you for feedbacks!

Great website, and a wonderful beryl collection! The "miracle" quartz is fantastic!!! I've never seen any like it.

Kuno, I am most impressed by your artwork. The cubist styled, crystal-inspired pieces are simply amazing. I hope you have a long and happy career as an artist; there is certainly room in this world for more of your work.
