Barite (Baryte) - gemmy crystal included by Coronadite
stock #16.1-077
Rosh Pinah Mine, Rosh Pinah, Luderitz District
Karas Region, Namibia
5 x 3.8 x1.2 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $300
new year 2021

A golden Barite single crystal with excellent clarity and glassy luster. From finds about 5 years ago at Rosh Pinah, this crystal is included by dozens of perfectly spherical Coronadite balls, and a few are also seen on the exterior as well. These are best appreciated with some magnification which also reveals the zoned nature of the inclusions. Most of the Barite at Rosh Pinah were slender or leafy crystals, this is unusual from just one pocket with this stout form. In excellent condition, some contacting on the lower parts is noted but no damage, the faces are sharp and glassy.

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 with Fluorite
stock #16.1-720
Orange River, Warmbad, Karasburg Dist.
Karas Region, Namibia
4.9 x 3.8 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $290
Spring 2017

Yellow milky Quartz prism with sharp yellow cubes of Fluorite along an edge. A choice and pretty Orange River specimen formerly in the Heini Saultau collection. Unusual for the association and colors, this is very different from typical Quartz from this locale. The main Quartz and Fluorites are clean, undamaged. Cute and choice
