GQ8-AT1Bloodstone, Quartz

Multiple photos available
Morbi District, Gujarat, India

Dimensions: 55 mm x 42 mm x 35 mm
Weight: 73 g

A somewhat interesting little specimen of natural Bloodstone which is noticeably devoid of red spots. Bloodstone’s level of ‘blood’ (iron oxide) inclusions can vary tremendously. Some may exhibit little to no spotting, while others are densely spotted. This particular example has a nice green base colour without any red spots, but with clear grey silica banding and some crystallised Quartz plus groups of tiny Quartz crystals in several areas.

9KL-EKDLabradorite (Var: Spectrolite)

Multiple photos available

Weight: 286 g

A large block of Plagioclase Feldspar var. Labradorite (type Finnish Spectrolite), exactly as found and untreated, with wonderful natural iridescence displayed on a number of areas of the specimen depending on the viewing angle and visible light. Most certainly a marvellous example of the type which takes pride of place in my varied mineral collection.
