Argentinian Amethyst

Argentina it is not a well know mineralogical country. An Argentinean Quartz quarry's owners carried out work searching for fine Quartz specimens to sell on the mineral market. I have an excellent relationship with him, so I purchased the best of his production. For the moment they are finding huge, doubly terminated, and frequently sceptered Amethyst Quartz. The first generation is milky white Quartz, the second generation is a deep Amethyst colored Quartz. Most of the specimens are floaters and some of them are on matrix too. Size, form and phantom inclusions are very attractive and offer to the mineral world something new that in my opinion it will help to place Argentina on the collector's map.

Doubly terminated Quartz (variety amethyst)
 

EV16H2: Doubly terminated floater. The color is deeper at the terminations, whose luster is also more intense than in the other faces. The crystal grew on other small crystals of Quartz (amethyst)

TR26AL5: A novelty at the Sainte Marie 2020 Virtual show: Quartz crystals, one of them clearly dominant, covered by two generations of very vivid greenish blue chrysocolla, the first forming a smooth and uniform cover and the other, later, in botryoidal growths. From a well known Peruvian locality but one from which this type of specimen had not been found before.
This sample has been referenced and pictured, as a novelty in Ste. Marie Virtual 2020, in the magazine 'Le Règne Minéral' number 154, page 45

Peruvian Rhodonite

Among the most commented upon novelties at Tucson 2007 were Peruvian Rhodonites from the San Martín Mine. Although this mine was previously known for that species, more careful methods of extraction by the actual owners of the mine made it possible to obtain new samples of a high quality, especially if we consider their color, because previous Rhodonites were generally pinker than the best new ones, which are more red.
Our selection is based, precisely, on picking just the deep red specimens because we believe color is the most distinctive aspect, in terms of quality, of the Rhodonite.
