I’ve posted excellent new specimens from the John S. White quartz collection, representing many different phenomena of quartz crystallization, also from a great diversity of localities and mineral environments.
I’ve posted some beautiful specimens in the new Brazil Update. These include gorgeous spessartine crystals (one from a rare locality), dravite crystals, blue topaz, rutile and hematite roses, among others.
This Dravite Tourmaline Update is a group of super crystals from Serra Branca, Rio Grande do Norte – an older find just coming to light for the first time. Sharp and lustrous, these crystals show textbook form and many look like crystal models.
