green mica
Believed to be a type of Mica, this shines like a metallic green. While in Tucson, we attempted to perform Raman Spectroscopy on it, but there was no flat surface and no information was obtained. It does flake and looks like Mica, but we are not sure of the origin. The color also indicates that the color could be due to Chrome, but a Chelsea Filter does not show red.
This 25ct yet to be determined mineral is $20 including shipping/insurance via USPS Priority Box. Note - U.S. Shipping Only; Inquire for International Shipping.

A B
A - Approximately 4 x 2 cm Aquamarine crystal with mica from the Shigar Valley (Pakistan); wonderful crystal structure. Color is very pale and essentially colorless; could be called Goshenite, but there is a small tinge of color, so this Beryl would probably be called Aquamarine by many. (minminr-13-01) $475
B - Approximately 5 x 2.5 cm Bicolor (watermelon?) Tourmaline on matrix (including Purple/Pink Lepidolite, possibly either Black Tourmaline or very dark Smoky Quartz and other associated pegmatite minerals - there are numerous smaller Tourmaline crystals on the piece), Shigar Valley, Pakistan (minminr-13-02) $625
For a quick sale - Both pieces for only $900

An incredible terminated quartz crystal from Brasil (Bueno'polis) with etching on the back that seems to show a mountainous scene with shrubs and trees. Naturally frosted on the back. Ones sees this in some minerals, but talented carvers have carved the backs of transparent material producing the same affect. This is natural and what a beauty! (brazimp-13-02) $2,950
Malachite Stalactite - Africa (the Congo)
malachite stalagtite malachite stalagtite
malachite stalagtite
A 1048ct Malachite Stalactite from the Congo (African). Comes with a wooden stand allowing one to display it. A really nice example! One of the ends does show what is inside - the wonderfully colorful banding of Malachite! We have seen small slices of this material and they were selling for about $30 a slice, and if one wanted to, many sliced could be cut from this piece, as well as some interesting doubles because of the two pieces that are grew attached to each other. We would not recommend destroying this specimen even though it would certainly mean a profit in the end. Approximately 5-1/2" long. (ch-13-01) $775
smoky quartz/amethyst scepter smoky quartz/amethyst scepter
A unique piece that comes from Ankazobe , Antananarivo Province in Madagascar. A Smoky AND Amethyst Quartz 135ct Scepter. Usually, it would be one or the other, but not both! Lots of interesting inclusions and we would not be surprised if one could find some water or liquid in some areas. Measures approximately 40mm from top to bottom. (pm-13-01) $350

A wonderful slice of Petrified Wood from Cherry Creek, NV that when we saw it, we had to have it! A nice natural design consisting of tans, beige, black, white, creams and even orange! Slice has not been polished and looks better when wet. If one were to spray on silicone, this would make the item look wet and bring out even more beauty, This is also a reversible process. There are a few areas where one can see crystal growth as in the photo directly above. (aggal-13-01) $250 including shipping!

amethyst crystals - mexico amethyst crystals - mexico
Two Amethyst Crystals from Cerro de la Concordia, Mexico. These crystals are water clean with a sort of glowing light purple (photo displays a darker color) - but they sparkle and glow in the sun. They seem to have grown floating in a pocket and have some other mineral on their bases - the large one actually has a terminated crystal on the base too! (dmrg-13-01) $225
striated agate slice
An Agate Slice from Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil. This caught our attention immediately because of the unique striations running horizontal which is not common. Also, the aesthetically pleasing natural shapes and designs at the top as well as the intricate border jumps out. It is dyed (green) and can most likely be removed, but the coloring does show the striations to the best advantage. (rock3k-13-02) $210

When this was encountered, we had never heard of Tourmaline crystals being found in Quartz geodes. This was a surprise to find and we snapped it up. In conversations with others, it seems that it is known to occur but it not common. We are currently awaiting more information, as we have sent an email to GIA as well as a very well-known mineral dealer. We did hear back from a well-known mineral dealer who indicated that he thought this would sell for about $2,000. However, his email seemed to indicate that he might have been thinking this was a much smaller slice of a geode and we got the impression that he was comparing it to a sliced tourmaline crystal. Our feeling is that even with photos, he didn't grasp that this was a huge quartz geode that contained tourmaline crystals - probably because he had never seen or heard of such a thing either. As in other All That Glitters inventory, this is priced to sell and we don't hold items back for personal use or a collection, though this is certainly something that we had never seen before in the past. Priced inexpensively considering the size, uniqueness (one-of-a-kind?) and the weight!.... (micho-13-01) $750
