Quartz with Fluorite
Orange River, Warmbad, Karasburg Dist.
4.9 x 3.8 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
Yellow milky Quartz prism with sharp yellow cubes of Fluorite along an edge. A choice and pretty Orange River specimen formerly in the Heini Saultau collection. Unusual for the association and colors, this is very different from typical Quartz from this locale. The main Quartz and Fluorites are clean, undamaged. Cute and choice
Piedras Parado, Las Vigas
6.7 x 3.9 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
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.
A super odd but esthetic, brilliant red phantom Quartz nested in a cluster of Calcite scalenohedrons. Gemmy zoned red Quartz contrasts with the Calcite and is undamaged. Formerly in the Heini Saultau collection, this is a very differnt from anything we have seen from this legendary locale.
