Quartz with Hedenbergite inclusions and Andradite
stock #8.AE-920
Sinerechenskoe, Kavalerovo mining district, Primorsky Krai
Far Eastern Region, Russia
5.2 x 3 x 2.4 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $220
Late Summer 2021

A nice combination specimen of dark green (nearly black from some angles) Quartz clustered on Andradite. The Garnets are tiny sparkling orange color and make a nice contrast. In very good condition as seen, the Quartz shows the classic form where it gets wider toward the termination, yet is not a scepter. Presents well from several angles with a good balance.

Quartz (red - acicular)
stock #8.1-409
2nd Sovietsky mine,Dalngorsk, Primorsky Kray
Far Eastern Region, Russia
10.8 x 6.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $300


This is technically called red quartz although this example is much more a peach- orange color. From the famous finds several years ago at Dalngorsk, these are now very rare especially when this large, esthetic, and clean. Very sculptural, displays well from several angles. Some of the crystal sprays (that reach 6 CM) are doubly terminated, others have a contact on one end but typically on the underside so they are not noticeable from the viewing angles. The color is very attractive, but not strong red or deep orange so the price is not 3-5K. An excellent value for one of these!
