TB89AM9: Centered groups of Eosphorite crystals, transparent, lustrous, brown with orange tones, on a matrix of Quartz crystals. Associated are multiple small rosette growths of Greifensteinite, a rare calcium iron phosphate. Both the Eosphorite and Greifensteinite have been analyzed and we will send a copy of both analyses to the buyer.

MF11AM9: A novelty at Tucson Virtual 2021. Unusual fan-shaped growths on matrix of translucent, lustrous and deep pink Quartz crystals whose color is not due to inclusions of iron oxides but rather is inherent to the Quartz itself. The exact name of the mine is not yet known, but it will surely become known with the passage of time.
Huancayo District, Huancayo Province, Junín Department  Peru (2020)

Specimen size: 4.3 × 3.9 × 2 cm = 1.69” × 1.54” × 0.79”

Main crystal size: 0.6 × 0.3 cm = 0.24” × 0.12”

MK87AM9: A novelty at Tucson Virtual 2021: Original spheroidal growths of translucent, lustrous and deep pink Quartz crystals (rose quartz variety) whose color is not due to inclusions of iron oxides, but is their intrinsic color. The specimen, somewhat different from those known until now, stands out both for its size and for the intensity of its color. The precise name of the mine is not yet known, but it will surely become known with the passage of time.
Huancayo District, Huancayo Province, Junín Department  Peru (2020)

Specimen size: 23.8 × 17.4 × 4.9 cm = 9.37” × 6.85” × 1.93”

Main crystal size: 0.6 × 0.2 cm = 0.24” × 0.08”
