Topaz on Clevelandite and Muscovite
stock #15.1-908
Shigar, Skardu District, Baltistan
Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
7.2 x 4.9 x 4.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $750
Spring update

Sharp and perfect Topaz (4.4 CM across) with an unusual but very esthetic morphology. Glassy luster and esthetically exposed, this is a very choice piece that is far better in person. The Topaz presents with an elongated termination facing outwards and the form and presentation is not a typical one. Damage free and for a non-colorful specimen this is really different and eye-catching in a display.

Shigar, Skardu District, Baltistan
Gilgit, Northern Areas, Pakistan
6.5 x 4.2 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)

new june 17

A very clear gem Topaz with a slight sherry color perched on a Clevelandite matrix. The Topaz crystal has a number of internal bubbles and negative crystals, it is in excellent condition. Nice esthetics and form, this is all natural color, there has been no irradiation for enhancement. The high clarity lets you see the matrix clearly through the Topaz.
Herderite (hydroxl Herderite) on Microcline
stock #Alec-14-368
Shigar, Skardu District, Baltistan
Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
5.5 x 4x 3.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $900


From the late 1990s vintage finds, a very distinctive, doubly terminated gem crystal perched on a crystal section of Microcline. The 3 CM long Herderite is in perfect condition and shows textbook form. Excellent esthetics and a slight color change from blueish to greenish in different light sources. A far better than average piece, and there has been nothing new on the market for several years.
Apatite- CaF exceptional royal purple
stock #17.1 WAM-A-148-099
Shigar, Skardu District, Baltistan
Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
4.4 x 3.4 CM (miniature)
price: $4250
Spring 2014

From an amazing small find in late 2012, this apatite has the intense purple color usually only seen in the finest Pulsifer crystals. Aside from the intense color that can not be well captured in photos, the faces are glass like with gemmy areas. In fine condition especially for such a large prism. The intense color is confined to an outer zone, so looking down the termination it is possible to see inside to the crystals grey-green interior. Far far better in person!
Spodumene Var. Hiddenite
stock #7-PAK-310
Shigar, Skardu District, Baltistan
Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
5.2 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $125


A single gemmy mint green crystal with a complete, jagged termination. From the finds in Shigar about 5 years ago, this seems to be one of those with stable color. A very good value in an uncommon spodumene variant.
