Quartz (variety rose quartz)
 

TA97AL5: Group of crystals of Quartz (variety rose quartz), very lustrous, transparent and with an intense and vivid pink color. What stands out most in the piece, in addition to its beauty, is how sharp the crystals are since rose Quartz very rarely presents so much definition. A Brazilian classic from the Rock Currier collection (No. 5105), whose label we will send to the buyer.

TH9AF0: Floater specimen of octahedral crystals with very well defined spinel law twinning and deep skeletal growths. The site is currently not supplying new specimens for collectors so new finds are not expected. We analyzed these Golds and they are really special. They contains a 99.1% Gold and about a 0.5 % Rhodium, which is quite uncommon. We’ll send a copy of the analysis to the buyer.

Anatase and Rutile epitaxial

One of the main novelties during the Ste. Marie-aux-mines Show 2003 was the new find of huge Anatase crystals groups which are epitaxial with their polymorph Rutile. To our knowledge these new crystals have never been found before in this shape and size. It is not only something very aesthetic and totally different from other forms of Anatase but, considering its size, beauty, perfection and also that the crystals are doubly terminated and floaters, it could be considered to be one of the best finds for this species. Enjoy them!
