TH28AM5: Globular growths of Stokesite with well-formed lenticular crystals on an Albite matrix, with Microlite and Cookeite. Stokesite is a rare calcium tin silicate.
Urucum Mine, Galiléia, Vale do Rio Doce, Minas Gerais  Brazil

Specimen size: 6.3 × 4.4 × 3.9 cm = 2.48” × 1.73” × 1.54”

Zanazziite (manganoan) with Albite and Elbaite
 

TG46AM5: Polycrystalline radial aggregates of Zanazziite, a rare phosphate of calcium, magnesium, and beryllium, translucent and pink and on an Albite matrix with Elbaite crystals. The analysis, of which we will send a copy to the buyer, shows an almost complete substitution of manganese for the normal subordinate iron, which is why we call it manganese-rich Zanazziite.
Jenipapo District, Itinga, Jequitinhonha, Minas Gerais  Brazil (2002-2003)

Specimen size: 6.9 × 5.4 × 4.2 cm = 2.72” × 2.13” × 1.65”

Main crystal size: 0.1 × 0.1 cm = 0.04” × 0.04”

EF46AM5: Group of Elbaite crystals, one of them clearly dominant, between transparent and translucent, lustrous, and with geometric color zoning. The main crystal is complete and several of the secondary ones show the typical pegmatite formation fractures. This piece comes from the Peter Rosewarne collection (number Rc560) whose label we will send to the buyer.

Quartz (variety rose quartz)
 

MX27AM5: A novelty at Tucson Virtual 2021. Original-looking fan-shaped growths of translucent Quartz crystals, with good luster and an intense pink color, on matrix. The pink color is not due to inclusions of iron oxides but is rather their natural color. The precise name of the mine is not yet known, but will surely become known with the passage of time.
