MKK-VNRQuartz SiO2

02504000014950585268674.jpg
Intschi Tobel, Intschi, Reuss Valley, Uri, Switzerland

Dimensions: 8 cm x 7 cm x 4 cm

That's a very good specimen from Switzerland. It shows many very lustrouse and clear Rock-crystals with a single main-crystal. This one is about 5 - 5,5 cm long and shows the best quality. No cracks or damages, you can see the other crystals through it. The specimen is in very good condition, no damages to report. Only a very small area on the lower backside had contact to the rock. Everything else is terminated (with uncountable surfaces) and shows a good luster. The specimen is easy to display in variouse positions.

VYW-PH7Fluorite CaF2 , Stilbite subgroup

09282980014962449908905.jpg
Gastein valley, St. Johann im Pongau District, Salzburg, Austria

Dimensions: 25 cm x 13 cm x 4 cm

Well developed specimen featuring several intergrown octahedrons up to 2,5 cm on edges. This piece is quite big for the location and shows some microcrystallized Stilbite on some of the Fluorite's faces. This is a very good contrast to the light green to green crystals. So significant damages.

5LV-27KCalcite CaCO3 , Duftite PbCu(AsO4)(OH)

00801040014962449918394.jpg
Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Oshikoto Region, Namibia

Dimensions: 15 cm x 10 cm x 4 cm

That's a very good specimen with an old generation of Calcite that is covered my a microcrystallized layer of Duftite. The Duftite shows a very intensive color and is partly overgrown by clear Calcites of a second generation. The specimen is beautiful free-standing with lustrous crystals, a fine combo.

F8T-DXCSilver Ag , Arsenic As

02163010014962449911944.jpg
Pöhla-Tellerhäuser Mine, Schwarzenberg, Erzgebirgskreis, Saxony, Germany

Dimensions: 13 cm x 10 cm x 7 cm

This is one of the most impressive specimens from this location I've seen on the market during the last years. Most of the specimens from Poehla are just Arsenic with Silver, pieces with matrix are rare and most wanted. This one is not just big, it's also beautiful with it's 3-dimensional dendritic silver and a great contrast to the Arsenic. This specimen is very rich with a weight of 1,3 kg! No damage.

PWQ-QM4Wulfenite Pb(MoO4)

07111350014947182498087.jpg
Stefanie Mine, Bad Bleiberg, Villach-Land District, Carinthia, Austria

Dimensions: 9 cm x 5 cm x 3 cm

This is a real good specimen from the type-location for Wulfenite. The quality belongs to the best 10% that have been found there. The crystals are extremly thin and show a great yellow color. The Wulfenite is crystallized on a white matrix with some unknown crystal on the other side (maybe Calcite)? A very good piece.

96M-F28Berthierite FeSb2S4 , Siderite FeCO3 , Calcite CaCO3

03602340014952530068835.jpg
Herja Mine, Chiuzbaia, Baia Mare, Maramureș, Romania

Dimensions: 16 cm x 11 cm x 8 cm

This specimen is impressive, not just because of it's size. When you're holding it you'll notice it's weight and all you'll say is "wow". Berthierite from Romania can be found on the marked sometimes, but this size is remarkable. The crystal-spray consists of uncountable single crystals grown on each other. On top you'll find thousands of small Siderites with a yellow-orange color - what a contrast to the dark Berthierite. The specimen is undamaged, okay there 1-2 small nicks on the Siderite but you'll have to search for them. An exceptional specimen!

04450700014962449911550.jpg
No. 5 Mine, Baia Sprie, Maramureș, Romania

Dimensions: 4 cm x 3 cm x 3 cm

A very fine specimen with a dominating Realgar from Baia Sprie. The main-crystal s 2,8 cm long and shows a intensive red color and high luster. It's back-side has a minor ding, but you'll have to search for it. High quality.

UGJ-4FTFluorite CaF2 , Baryte BaSO4 , Galena PbS

06070580014962449915205.jpg
Beihilfe Mine, Halsbrücke, Mittelsachsen, Saxony, Germany

Dimensions: 13 cm x 13 cm x 5 cm

A very fine specimen from one of the best known locations in Germany. It consits mainly of lustrous Fluorites with a max. size of 2,7 cm from edge to edge. The color is white to light blue. Next to the largest Fluorites is a nice cluster of high lustrous Barite-crystals. The other side of the specimen is also very interesting, it is concave formed with some small Galena and Barite-crystals. The specimen is undamaged - there may be a few minor dings, but I haven't found them. A classic specimen.

44G-G65Cinnabar HgS , Mercury Hg

07809460014962449911307.jpg
Idria Mine, Idrija, Gorizia Region, Slovenia

Dimensions: 7 cm x 4 cm x 4 cm

This is a specimen from an old collection. A nice specimen of this historic location is in an old glass. I was told that this glass wasn't opened since decades, you can see it was closed with cork and wax. The specimen itself shows some nice mercury-balls on cinnabar. Very hard to get! The glass is 7 cm high and 4 cm in diameter. All photos were taken through the glass, so please excuse the unsharpness.
