A very attractive amethyst cluster with sharp crystals, most of them transparent. The crystals with a vitreous luster measure to 6 cm and are distinctly purple in color. The specimen is in excellent condition except for one visible damage.
An attractive specimen form a famous locality: epidote from the world famous locality Knappenwand. The main crystal is sharp with pronounced striation on the prism faces. Typical for Knappenwand epidot, the specimen is slightly bent and shows a recrystallized contact on one side. This specimen is in excellent condition except for a minor damage on the bootom.
A very exceptional specimen of fluorite from the Triassic Keuper formation. Characteristically yellow-brown fluorite crystals perched on calcite scalenohedra. Specimen of this quality are fairly rare and coveted among collectors. No wonder, the quarries in the Swiss Canton Basel-Land have not produced good specimens in quite a while.
This is quite an exceptional specimen with numerous iron roses to 1 cm perched on tabular adularia crystals. The specimen is in pristine condition and entirely free of damage. A superb specimen which is exceedingly harder to find on the market.
This is an excellent smoky quartz specimen. The main quartz crystal, faint but visible smoky and is surrounded on its base by smaller smoky quartz crystal. This is a perfect specimen with only minor chips.
You are looking at a wonderful, almost perfect iron rose with a diameter of 3.2 cm, perched on small adularia crystals and tabular muscovite. When these iron roses are recovered in the field, they often separate from the matrix and need to be put back. This is a top specimen!
A magnificent skeletal quartz with superb etchings on the crystal faces. The crystal is sharp, transparent and undamaged. The left over original crystal faces show visible striation perpendicular to the prism. A smoky quartz in its skeletal variety is fairly rare.
An exciting smoky quartz specimen with perfect transparent crystals. They show an extremely strong vitreous luster and a visible smoky-brown hue. A very aesthetic specimen.
