Roweite with Olshanskyite
Roweite with Olshanskyite. Roweite with Olshanskyite.

EB99AF9: Rosette aggregates of laminar Roweite crystals of great size and quality for what has been known of this species. They are on matrix, with colorless and transparent Olshanskyite crystals. The Roweite crystals, that are well differentiated, have a light creamy color with very well defined faces and edges. The quality of the specimens is undoubtedly superior to what was previously known, both for the individuality of the crystals and for their sharpness, but also for the size of the crystals and their association with first class Olshanskyite which makes them deserving to be in the best private collections and museums. We have analyzed specimens to confirm the identity of the species and we will send a copy of the different species to buyers.

ER87AF7: The Olshanskyite from the Shijiangshan Mine was previously well-known for its quality, largely overtaking the best known to date for the species. But a very recent find has raised the roof of quality to unforeseen levels. From this new find we had the opportunity to select from the best samples found. They are aggregates with crystals, some of them very elongated and very well differentiated, clear, colorless and extraordinarily bright, with very sharp crystalline forms. The great quality of the pieces offered here, due their neat shape, the beauty of the aggregates and the crystal size, make them deserving to be in the best private and museum collections.

Babingtonite

Munich 2005 offered some samples from China that were offered as Manganbabingtonite. We had doubts about the composition so we did simple analysis and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The results leave no doubts: they are really Babingtonite. They are exceptional in size, their association with Prehnite and Quartz and their agreeable esthetics.
Once more, China amazes us with something surpassing the best previously known for a species!

During the 2003 Tucson Show the main novelty was, without doubt, the new Chinese Mimetites.
As you can see their quality is exceptional. We selected the more colorful orange ones, leaving from those we saw the more yellowish ones as they are too similar in our opinion of the former Thailand ones. Also we tried to get the more perfect specimens with the nicer and sharper forms.

Kermesite

This find represents the best samples ever found of this species. The size, perfect form as well as the cherry red color (when back lit) make them, in our opinion, one of the most significant finds of the last few years. We have selected solid specimens from our stock, so that shipping will not be a problem.

Please note that all this photos was taken with a strong light source at the rear of the specimen, in order to show its deep red color, under normal lighting this is not so visible.
