Nice, sharp pink dolomite crystals on a gray matrix of smaller quartz crystals
Good mix of species and all are well- formed and display nicely.
Beautiful detailed piece with nice fluorites that show good color under UV.
Well- formed bright spessartine on sharp microcline and smoky quartz. Quartz crystals are not perfect, but do not detract from the piece overall.
Large calcite crystal on druzy calcite over sphalerite. Some nicely formed galena crystals scattered across the surface as well.
Very cool, sharp Coke- bottle green fluorite on a matrix of fine, druzy quartz. Very nice contrast between the fluorite and quartz that is not well- represented by the photos.
Sharp clusters of quartz with some purple fluorites grown over them. Druzy matrix makes the other crystals stand out very well.
Sharp arsenopyrite, quartz, and purple fluorite on druzy matrix. All species show nicely. Larger quartz crystal is not perfect but still a nice combination piece.
Sharp, colorful fluorite cluster with pale blue to purple color.
Small vugs of atacamite on matrix. Atacamite needles are sharp and nicely colored.
Sharp crystals of sphalerite and galena on an almost druzy calcite. Whole specimen has a reddish tint that doesn’t show up in the photo, but adds some personality to the piece.
Very nice large display piece with two large quartz crystals with a nice scattering of orange spessartine garnets across the crystals and on the matrix.
Guandong Province Heyuan Prefecture
Very nice large display piece with sharp quartz crystals on a matrix of bladed hematite. The quartz is highlighted by iron staining that makes them stand out nicely.
Very cool cluster of calcite crystals covered with a nice coating of pyrite.
Well- formed crystals of orange spessartine garnet, smoky quartz, and mica on a granite matrix.
Hunan Province Shiukoushan
Large calcite crystals on a calcite druze. Small crystals of sphalerite and galena scattered throughout. Whole specimen has a reddish tint that doesn’t show up in the photo, but adds some personality to the piece.
Very large piece covered with sharp crystals of pink dolomite. There are a couple of crystals of bluish fluorite scattered around the piece that contrast nicely against the dolomite.
Very sharp, blades of calcite with a slight dusting of chalcopyrite that brings out the texture of the piece. Fluoresces with a nice pink- orange color under UV light.
Very sharp, blades of calcite with an almost scaly structure. The piece has a nice coating of chalcopyrite that brings out the texture of the piece. Fluoresces with a nice pink- orange color under UV light.
Very large crystals of calcite on a matrix of smaller calcite crystals. The larger crystals are a pale purple under normal light and fluoresce with a nice orange color under UV light.
Very cool combination piece with nice crystals of fluorite and quartz with an almost snow- like coating of white calcite. The piece has a lot of personality.
Guanxi Zhuang A.R. Daoping
Nice crystals of apple- green pyromorphite on a reddish matrix. Excellent color.
Very cool disks of calcite with a coating of shiny chalcopyrite crystals. Very aesthetic piece.
Beautiful, nearly transparent, Coke bottle green fluorite cluster. Nice sharp crystals with only a little damage along specimen edges.
Nice sharp blades of calcite on limstone matrix. Very little damage to blades.
Smaller version of CH- 012 but with less matrix. Very nice three- dimensional piece.
Very nice, three- dimensional display piece with both large blades of calcite and smaller spar across surface of the limestone. Displays nicely from all angles.
A beautiful cluster of sharp, Coke- bottle green cubic fluorites on matrix. Displays nicely from all angles.
Well- formed crystals of orange spessartine garnet, nice smoky quartz, and mica (altered to a pale green) on a granite matrix.
Well- formed clusters of green atacamite on matrix.
Well- formed crystals of deep yellow barite on a lighter matrix. Whole specimen has an interesting texture.
