Dec 2018

A super sharp, clear and lustrous gemmy Adularia crystal is nicely perched on matrix. A very old specimen, ex Roberto Palumbo (Rome, Italy mineral dealer active 1928-1945) with his label. The Feldspar is distinctly twinned as well and perfcely undamaged even at high magnifications. The locality of Monte Forno in the Piedmont has several well known alpine localities on it but also many tiny clefts that were worked mostly by Swiss Strahlers over a very long period. This is a choice piece with the Adularia well above the matrix and presenting well from all sides.
Pink Fluorite with Clinozoisite, Rhombic Adularia, Clinochlore etc.

Spring 2013

A fine alpine cleft Pink Fluorite that is NOT Swiss or French but a much rarer Italian Piedmont piece! With magnification this is especially striking, the octahedrons are glassy, sharp and show complexities, they are set in a vug lined with spikey Clinozoisites and glassy rhomb form Adularia. All with a sprinkle of bright green Clinoclore (Amesite?). Very rare to see any of these for sale this is an especially nice older specimen of pre 1960 vintage. Ex Bill Hlaydsz collection.
