Fluorite on Quartz
stock #AX-14-347
Orange River, Namakwa
Northern Cape Province, South Africa
3.6 x 1.4 x 1.3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $145
Late Summer 2021

A cute thumbnail with transparent, colorless Fluorites that have vivid purple cores or phantoms. These are all clustered on two faces of a clear Quartz crystal. The Quartz and the Fluorites are in fine condition. From a find about 4 years ago in the Orange River region (South Africa) this is just barely a thumbnail but will fit in a perky box.

Fluorite - modified and aligned cubo-octahedral crystals
stock #AX-14-345
Orange River, Namakwa
Northern Cape Province, South Africa
2.9 x 2.2 x 1.8 CM (thumbnail)
price: $160
new year 2021

Dark purple Fluorite crystals that are translucent to transparent in strong lighting. A somewhat unusual locality better known for the red and orange Quartz crystals this is a nice example of this habit. The crystals are edge-modified cubes (cubo-octahedral) aligned with each other. There is no matrix except Flourite which has tiny stepped voids in the flat surfaces. The back and one side are incomplete, the front facing (display face) side is in fine undamaged condition.

Quartz - with red and black phantoms
stock #16.1-722
Orange River, Namakwa
Karas Region, Namibia
3.6 x 2.9 x 2.7 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $230
new year 2021

Two main Quartz crystals both with distinct phantoms inside clear prisms. From the finds a few years ago at Orange river, the red color is especially deep on this specimen and the overall esthetics are choice. In excellent condition as seen, this could be trimmed to make a very strong thumbnail but I like this as is. One crystal is much more black in the phantom and the other is mostly red with just hints of black. We understand these are all Hematite inclusions but it is odd that crystals in such close proximity would be so different in color.

Amethyst- conjoined scepters
stock #17.1-663
Orange River, Namakwa
Karas Region, Namibia
2.1 x 1.4 x 1 CM (thumbnail)
price: $135
Spring 2020

A sweet thumbnail of sharp transparent Amethyst scepters that share a single stem. Both crystals show a double termination and grade to colorless lower down. From a find a few years ago at Orange River (Namibia), there were not many of these. In fine condition as seen, and a bit nicer in person too.

Quartz -orange phantom
stock #16.1-732
Orange River, Namakwa
Karas Region, Namibia
7.3 x 7.5 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $325
new june 17

A very unusual Orange River Quartz, with the center piece being a doubly terminated crystal with a sharp deep colored phantom and clear exterior. The matrix is also crystallized quartz with additional phantoms but more pale in color. Ex. Heini Saultau collection, this is in excellent condition with the dark phantom crystal well presented.

Quartz - red inclusions of Hematite
stock #AX-11-408
Orange River, Namakwa
Northern Cape Province, South Africa
4.7 x 3.1 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $380
Post Tucson 2015

A classic Orange river Quartz on matrix that has excellent esthetics, form and condition. Deep orange-red color with good transparency, this is much better than typical for this fantastic locality. One attached crystal that is on the "backside" has damage, that is not seen on display. The main crystal is perfect.
