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.

EM48AF8: Group, on matrix, of octahedral Alabandite crystals that have their vertices truncated by cube faces and that show very well the Spinel-law twin. The length of the main crystal, clearly dominant, is extraordinary and it is unquestionably one of the largest ever found.

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.

MR72AB7: Druse of Quartz (variety amethyst) crystals, one of them clearly dominant and with a considerable size. They are coating the surfaces of a group of now missing Calcite crystals, preserving their original shape. The crystals show a neat geometric color zoning, clearer on the prism faces and deep violet on the terminations. The sample is from a not well known quarry at the classic Artigas área and where very interesting and esthetic samples are today being recovered.
