I was so impressed with this miner's wares that I purchased all his specimens of size.  This was only about 4 boxes.  Had he owned more I would have bought as many as I could have gotten.  This is a new find of this classic material.  Far larger than than crystals from previous finds.  Some of these would have been considered world class specimens before this year.  Get them now while they are available.  I was unable to get more and there is a good chance that you will run into the same problem.

All of these specimens should be expected to have tiny water enhydros in them.  Many are visible but even if they are not the specimens should not be exposed to high temperatures or freezing conditions.  All of these specimens display the highest luster available in any quartz specimen and terrific form.  These specimens will appear under priced compared to those offered by other dealers.  This is due to the fair deal I received on them, not due to damage or problems.
