Quartz replacing and coating Glauberite
stock #20.1-883
Irai, Alto Urugual region
Rio Grande do Sul, South Region, Brazil
4.8 x 3.1 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $80
new year 2021

From the zone in Brazil famed for Amethyst geodes, this is something very different from almost any other Quartz. A pair of spindle-like growths of Glauberite that has been altered to and overgrown by Quartz. These are perfect, complete all around, with tiny transparent smokey Quartz sparkling on all sides.

Amethyst
stock #13.1-060
Irai, Alto Urugual region
Rio Grande do Sul, South Region, Brazil
8.1 x 6.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $250


Simply a very esthetic and unusually well formed piece. The "flower" is 7 cm in diameter and the individual "petals" reach 3.8 CM. The color is a gradation from light to dark purple and the whole sits neatly on a quartz matrix. Excellent condition and showy. Irai has been a very prolific location so good specimens can still be found for a reasonable sum. This is well above average for quality and a very good value.

Amethyst
stock #7 BRAZ 212
Irai, Alto Urugual region
Rio Grande do Sul, South Region, Brazil
12 x 9 CM (cabinet)
price: $350


Two perfect radiating clusters (suns) joined together in an impressive and esthetic piece of glasslike quartz. No damage at all, a fine purple hue that grades to a clear outer edge the piece is fully transparent and glows with even a hint of backlight. Not the typical quality, this is a fine mineral specimen for a fine collection.
