ME27AE8: Aggregate of very sharp pyramidal-shaped crystals, one of them clearly dominant. They have parallel growths, are translucent and have a very bright dark brown-violet color typical of Korean samples. The base is irregular but continuous because it is a single contact surface and is not broken.
Tae Hwa Mine, Neungam-ri, Angseong-myeon, Chungju, Chungcheongbukdo  South Korea

Specimen size: 4.3 × 3.5 × 3.3 cm = 1.7” × 1.4” × 1.3”

Scheelite with Quartz and Calcite

VB37Z4: Translucent dipyramidal deep brown Scheelite crystal. It is bright, has polycrystalline growths and is on a white Calcite matrix with small Quartz crystals. Before the Chinese samples appeared, these Korean pieces were the "top" for the species.

TX87AE8: An unusual association. Parallel growths of Cerussite crystals with a prismatic shape, a color that varies between different grades of yellowish color and that are partially coated by small acicular Crocoite crystals. Traditionally such Cerussite is well known as “chrome-cerussite” but recent analyses demonstrate that it’s a regular Cerussite. An uncommon sample, very esthetic.

Azurite

TG49AD2: Complete flattened Azurite nodule on matrix. It’s contour resembles a medallion, a shape typical of the locality, with diffuse rosette growths on its surface and a very intense and uniform color. Due to the intensity of its color and the excellent definitions of the nodule this sample is better than usual for the locality.

Elbaite spheres on matrix

From Burma come these new, very interesting Elbaites (Rubellites) that are different from those in previous finds. The Elbaites are in the form of spheres or arborescent sprays on white Calcite or Quartz matrix, so the contrast between the white and red makes them very attractive. From this important find we have selected the specimens that have, in our opinion, the best esthetics, brilliance and definition of form. In all cases the Elbaite is aerial on the matrix. As many of the specimens from this find had some form of coating of some sort of Kaolin, we avoided them and went for the ones that have a ‘fresh’ look.
For you information, as no one could tell us if any analysis had been done of this find, we decided to have the analyzed. They are Elbaite, and while they do contain some Calcium in their composition it is not enough for them to be Liddicoatite. So they are definitely Elbaite.
