Quartz - yellow tip - new find
stock #19.1-813
Cabiche, Municipio de Quipama
Boyaca, Colombia
4.4 x 4.2 x 2.9 CM (miniature)
price: $450


This amazing find of clear Quartz with bright yellow tips was big news in the mineral world recently. The find seems to be finished and these quickly became prized specimens. This piece is a choice example, with a strong display impact far bigger than the small size. In perfect condition the yellow tipped crystals are mixed with several clear, colorless prisms making a nice contrast. This does not have the muddy, brownish color that many have it is very bright and lively. The inclusions are still unconfirmed but the latest idea is Halloysite. No mater the included mineral the esthetic effect is impressive. Top bright luster and super clarity, a fine addition to any quartz suite or just for a spot of color on the shelf.
Quartz -Yellow Humboldtine inclusions
stock #18.1-629
Cabiche, Municipio de Quipama
Boyaca, Colombia
7.3 x 6.5 x 5.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $950
Dec 2018

An incredible new find of Quartz with bright yellow tips that are now known to be inclusions of Humboldtine. We obtain this specimen and a few others in Colombia just over two years ago but the analysis was not validated until recently. This specimen is a radiating group of Quartz crystals on a small shard of matrix, and is in fine condition. The find has made big news in the mineral world and now seems to be fully exhausted, there were very few matrix specimens and most of these were very quickly sold. This specimen has misplaced and not put in our show display, it is one of the few left and we think maybe the only one on the web. Choice and obviously a very rare Quartz.
