Largest Crystal Size: 8 cm

Multicolour slender elbaite crystals on a matrix with light pink lepidolite and little transparent albite crystals.

Purchased in 2002. The specimen was on display in the special exhibition of tourmalines during the Munich Mineral Show 2003. Published in Extra-Lapis No. 40 (Brasilien), Christian Weise Verlag, München (2011), p. 68.

884-JFFQuartz (Var: Smoky Quartz)

Planggenstock, Göscheneralp, Göschenen Valley, Uri, Switzerland

Dimensions: 17.5 cm x 8 cm x 8 cm

Completely transparent smoky quartz crystal with a warm light brownish tone, as typical for many Swiss smoky quartz crystals. The transparency and overall quality of this crystal reminds to me the historically recorded exports of excellent Swiss quartz crystals to Italy in the late middle age and Renaissance epoches, where the crystals were cut by italian artisans to create famous glyptic artworks for European royal courts. The crystal was found by the Swiss Strahlers Franz von Arx and Elio Müller in the Planggenstock area. Purchased in 2012.
The crystal was on display by the former owner during the Munich Mineral show 2009 in the Alpine Minerals Section. Published in Extra-Lapis No. 44 (Uri), Chistian Weise Verlag, München (2013), p. 53.

Largest Crystal Size: 5 cm

Cluster of deltoidal icositetrahedric crystals of analcime with some attached apophyllite.

LYD-UHFHematite (Var: Iron Rose), Muscovite

Mörchnerkar, Mörchner area, Zemmgrund, Zillertal, North Tyrol, Tyrol, Austria

Dimensions: 13 cm x 12 cm x 8 cm
Largest Crystal Size: 8 cm

Dominant black lustrous hematite aggregate (iron rose) with some minor iron roses on a gneiss matrix with clusters of greenish-silvery muscovite flakes and isolted little quartz crystals. Found in 2004 by an Austrian Strahler and mineral collector in a large alpine cleft in the Mörchner Kar locality in Zillertal, Tyrol, Austria. Apart from the present piece, the vug contained a dozen of additional, high-quality iron roses too, some of them up to 18 cm tall. This find is considered today as one of the most significant discoveries of Zillertal iron roses ever made. Purchased in 2004. The specimen was on display in the "European Classics" exhibition during the Munich Mineral Show 2011.
