Rose Quartz
stock #8 DK-018
Pitorra Claim, Laranjeiras, Galileia, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
7 x 6.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $400


Really attractive and well composed, this is a fine "picket fence" style rose quartz collected over 20 years ago. Excellent color sharpness, luster and condition, this could be priced much higher in the current market. The milky quartz matrix and the depositional banding add a lovely contrast to this specimen. With a strong light and magnification I can find one chipped termination that is behind other crystals so is well hidden. Otherwise perfect.
Tourmaline (Elbaite)
stock #8 DK-162
Barra do Salinas Mining District, Coronel Murta
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5.9 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $750


A big, fat multi colored parrelel growth Elbaite crystal with distinct zoning. Good color -this would cut some large and fine cats eye gems, this is also fluorescent and has two distinct color zones. This has been photographed for an upcoming article on Fl. Tourmaline. Real nice luster and undamaged except at the attachment point . A good value for a large and unusual Elbaite.
Rose Quartz
stock #8-DK-080
Pitorra Claim, Laranjeiras, Galileia, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5 x 4.1 CM (miniature)
price: $280


Rose quartz crystalized in a cluster with micro sprays of Eosphorite. Nice color and arrangement. Rose Quartz in crystals is only known from a few places and is very rare in general.
Tourmaline (Elbaite) in stacked prisms
stock #8.1-449
Golconda Pegmatite district, Governador Valadares, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
4.9 x 1.6 CM (miniature)
price: $425


A fine zoned green gem crystal with a remarkable and rare termination. This looks like a reversed scepter as the inner termination rises above the base prism. Very sharp and clean, there are some very tiny chips on a few edges but not distracting at all. Pretty much all gem with green color ranging from yellowish to a deeper bottle green color.
Elbaite tourmaline with Beryllonite
stock #8.1-446
Arqueana Mine
Minas Gerais, Brazil
8.4 x 6.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $1400


A fantastic combination specimen, this is NOT common! Immediately obvious is the big, two-tone green Elbaite just under 7 cm long and over 3 cm thick. That would be a very fine and attractive specimen on its own, but the matrix is composed of dozens of sharp terminated Beryllonites to 1.3 CM long. The overall condition is excellent, there is some minor chipping that is not easily seen from display angles.
Tourmaline (Elbaite- Indicolite)
stock #8 DK-060
Conselheiro Pena, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
7.8 X 3 CM (cabinet)
price: $2400


A killer gem crystal! First the piece is unrepaired, and the termination of this is like a cityscape. Individual peaks are staggered in an esthetic array. Secondly the color is rich and rare, a deep indicoloite blue grading to a deep bottle green. The luster is excellent and overall the condition is outstanding, no distracting damage or chips. Sizable too, so at a quick glance this looks dark and opaque due to the thickness, but this really glows with good lighting. The photos here have minimal backlight so the crystal is not "overlit" and unrealistic. You can really make it sing with stronger light if you want! Compare if you can find somthing like this, it is reasonable for so much good gem!
Tourmaline (elbaite) Steeply terminated
stock #8 DK-145
Golconda Pegmatite district, Governador Valadares, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3.5 x 2.1 CM (small miniature)
price: $300


Deep gemmy green crystal with very unusual termination much like a Dunton mine, Maine but still distinctly different. The crystal is a flattened prism and the display side is relatively clean of damage (micro nicks of no real significance) the back and base have contacts and removal damage but it still displays well. It is a good gem crystal with a different look than any I have seen from Golconda.
Quartz, Flattened, doubly terminated
stock #8 DK-089
Linopolis, Divino das Laranjeiras, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
12.8 x 5 CM (cabinet)
price: $450


For even the most jaded quartz collector! This is a very different and attractive quartz that is mostly clear but with some internal milky clouds. Very flat and tabular, average is only 1.3 Cm thick, and resembling a fadden but without any "string" visible. To make it a little more exotic, there is a very slight twist to the crystal so it technically a gwendel but just barely! I have not seen any other quite like this and gwendels that are not from alpine clefts are very rare indeed! Ther are two very tiny hard to find chips on the backside of this otherwise it is absolutely pristine,
