These natural quartz clusters originated in the famous state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. This area is known for producing most of the gemstones and crystals that come from Brazil. Each cluster has been chosen individually from a large lot, bubble wrapped and shipped from Brazil to the United States. There are approximately 125 pieces in total with most never having been unwrapped since their arrival at our office back in 1987. They have been crated and stored in a warehouse for those years. Four pieces have been photographed. A dime has been used to indicate size. These make great paperweights, gifts or just as an addition to an existing collection or perhaps even the beginning of a new collection.

Gemstones Found in the United States!
Below are Smoky Quartz mined in the state of New Hamsphire by a number of people over the past few decades. The locality is the Ossippe, NH area, which is in the vicinity of the Lakes Region. The area is known for Smoky Quartz, but like most minerals, they are still difficult to find and therefore, this represents decades of searching and hard work by a few dedicated mineral collectors. We have faceted some of this material, tumbled and have left a few groups untouched so one can appreciate the natural crystal as found. This is ideal for those who are interested in gemstones found in the U.S. and specifically for those who collect Quartz or New England gemstones and minerals!
