This picture gallery presents a wide selection of handpicked aesthetic and rare minerals from China that we have to offer.
A very exceptional miniature with bright green crystals to 1.3 cm, some of them whiskers. The crystals are sharp, translucent and lustrous. Minimal chipping is barely visible. Simply a superb and aesthetic specimen.
A colorful specimen, rich in contrast: Realgar crystals, characteristically bright red and to 4 cm wide are perched on a yellowish white calcite scalenohedron. Realgar crystals show a pronounced striation on the prism faces, they are translucent and only minimally chipped. Realgar on the back of the crystals is superficially converted to pararealgar, obviously due to exposure to sun light. The calcite crystal is translucent, sharp , undamaged, and brilliantly lustrous.
A very aesthetic specimen!
A wonderful and perfect specimen with sharp, dark reddish brown sphalerite crystals. They are associated with multifaceted, metallic grey cuboctahedral galena crystals with a bright metallic luster. A top specimen.
