Wardite -huge crystals with Wavellite etc.
stock #18.1-360
Ilha claim, Taquaral, Itinga
Minas Gerais, Brazil
6.1 x 5.9 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $850
Late Summer 2018

A superb specimen with gigantic, perfectly formed Wardite crystals. Textbook perfect form and up to 2 CM across these are the best and largest Brazilian Wardites I have ever seen, and are top percentile for the specie worldwide. These are esthetically set on a complex mix of Pegmatitic minerals and Phosphates. Aside from the Quartz and Muscovite crystals the matrix also includes what are identified as Wavelite (radiating sprays and blue green balls) and what seems to be Fairfieldite and Guimaraesite. The main event however is certainly the Wardites which are a cream color and undamaged. Outstanding Phosphate specimen and a killer Wardite.
Rose Quartz - large doubly terminated crystals
stock #18 AX-7-169
Ilha claim, Taquaral, Itinga
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5.3 x 4 x 2.8 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $1100
Worldwide mix summer

Sharp undamaged rose Quartz crystals in a parallel position cluster. Individual crystals reach 3 CM and are all doubly terminated. Very glassy luster, good color and with just a small contrasting Quartz matrix. On close exam some curving faces are seen. Choice display piece that has strong display impact from several angles. Better in person too
