We are not long back from the Munich mineral show and our pallet of goodies has already landed in our warehouse…
Heres a brief look at some of what we bought…
Natural Diamond Crystals from Kenya, first time we have had raw diamonds in about 15 years!
animals, tumble, lozenges, thumb stones, eggs, spheres pyramids. The malachite animals represent a lot of work to select from 100’s of strangely carved creatures and a long and difficult journey from the carvers to Europe.
Fossil bowls, Baryte from Morroco
Pyrite eggs and spheres, plus chrysocolla and chalcopyrite hearts from Peru and a very large collection of soapstone and serpentine animals carved in Peru.
All from a collection made 10 – 15 years ago, every piece a winner but also a few good fabulously large specimens we seldom see these days plus a small selection of cut stones for claw setting in India.
big collection of Opal doublets and a few solids for setting in India…pendants earrings and rings.
Great new designs to double up as bracelets. New point pendulums in Tourmalinated quartz, Ruby in Fuchsite and garnet (amongst others), also Kyanite beads – a few strands (not in all our shops!)
The long welcome return of Apophyllityes, Stilbites, etc including some green. Also some amazing chalcedony… a few samples below
