Andradite- gemmy, older specimen
stock #18.1-270

Veracruz, Mexico
2.8 x 2.7 x 1.6 CM (thumbnail)
price: $130
Worldwide mix summer

A bright and attractive thumbnail of gem clear Garnets from Vera Cruz that was added to the Les Hitchings collection in 1983. This is an almost perfect match to the look of the new find of Andradites from Vera Cruz in 2016. The new find was very big news since no one had ever seen such fine garnets from that area, and there was speculation that they came from elsewhere, no exact locality was given. The new find was quickly exhausted but this specimen shows that area has in the past produced some very pretty Andradite, and perhaps it will again someday.

Spring 2017

From the new (late 2016 early 2017) finds at Las Vigas, a gem clear, incredibly perfect and sharp cluster of Amethyst. Competition grade, the individual crystals reach 4.8 CM and are perfectly transparent, a few internal bubbles are also seen. This classic area has recently produced some superb specimens. This is that rare specimen perfect, undamaged and complete- no issues at all. Far better in person.

Amethyst
stock #8-MEX-683
Piedras Parado, Las Vigas
Veracruz, Mexico
11.4 x 6.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $450


A very showy and rich plate covered with fine quartz with deep gemmy purple tips. Super luster and no damage except on the perifery which is not visible at all from normal display angles. Individual crystals reach 3.8 CM and the quality is excellent for the locality. Las Vigas was a prolific location but for the last year or so no new materials are to be found. If the location is finished, these are sure to appreciate fast.
