TR68AH2: Floater sample with arborescent growths of very elongated octahedral crystals with very sharp skeletal parallel forms. 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 contain 99.1% Gold and about 0.5 % Rhodium, which is quite uncommon. We’ll send a copy of the analysis to the buyer.

ET87I1: The crystals are prismatic, and quite thick. Some of them are doubly terminated. Due to their color and luster they have a strong contrast with the matrix of Feldspar. The analysis confirms it is Childrenite. Roscherite, also analyzed, is present as very small crystals covering the Childrenite.

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!

Anatase and Rutile epitaxial
 

EA11C9: Although the camera don't show it very well, the color is very nice, sort of a golden bronze, and its luster is very special with a lot of reflections. As with the other specimens that we had selected this one is floater, doubly terminated and great!
