Siderite -curved epitaxial group
stock #18.1-442
Gauli Glacier
Bern, Switzerland
5.7 x 4 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $550
Dec 2018

An exceptional Swiss alpine specimen of perfect curved rhombs in an esthetic stack. From a less well known locality at the Gauli Glacier in the Bernese alps. This zone is not well known for minerals but as the large glacier has been retreating some things have come to light. Recently (August of 2018) a heatwave uncovered a WW2 vintage US aircraft that is the second such wreck uncovered on Gauli. This Siderite is elegantly formed with a few small quartz and Rutile crystals as minor accessories. In exceptional condition and very eyecatching, this is a super Siderite from anyplace but especially choice and rare in such perfection from the Alps.
Adularia with Titanite (Classic Alpine)
stock #18.1-441
Rotiaul. Guttannen, Hasli Valley
Bern, Switzerland
7.8 x 4.6 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $440
Dec 2018

A super esthetic stack of perfect Adularia crystals in epitaxial arrangement hosting gem clear Titanites. Some selective coating of Chlorite on crystal faces of the Adulariaadds some contrast as well. This is a 360 degree piece it looks fine on all sides and has a strong esthetic arrangement. The main Titanite is 8mm perfect, gem clear flat prism with bright luster. A few tiny Quartz crystals are mixed into the matrix as well, overall a super fine arrangement of Alpine species.
