OKD-426

OKD-426    Calcite and Chalcedony      Nasik, India.  I came upon this unusual piece approximately ten years ago and stocked it away for a rainy day.  I have yet to see another like this.  I've observed my share of calcite scepters, but none of this quality on chalcedony stalactites.  Put these interesting forms together in a matrix vug and it becomes a wonderfully unusual specimen for the collector who thinks they have seen everything unique from India.  This fine specimen measures 14 x 12 x 6 cm overall and is totally damage free.  The scepters are clear to white with selective face coatings of a sugary quartz or secondary calcite overgrowth, their stems are darker than the caps.  Comes with a custom engraved acrylic base.   I am able to offer this fine piece for only....$950

 

 

 

 

 

OKI-214...looking at vertical twin plane

Smaller twins at bottom left.

Good view of twin plane

OKI-214     Gyrolite on and in Calcite Twins     Poona, India.  An impressive specimen when one takes a moment to consider all that is here.  The primary crystal is attached to several smaller twins and has a minor region of contact on backside from where it looks to have been attached against some gyrolite or okenite.  The specimen displays like a floater and is certainly an impressive twin.  It measures 7.4 x 5.2 x 4 cm and is clear with minor inclusions including well formed balls of gyrolite.  Some gyrolites also appear on the surface of the crystals.  Only one minor rub which will need to be searched out with magnification in order to find it.  Displays great from all sides.  One of the nicest calcite twins I’ve ever had in stock.  Outstanding Indian calcite!  245$

OKI-114

OKI-114     Stilbite and Heulandite    Undisclosed “Well Excavation” in India, 2003.  I was lucky enough to get these fine specimens from a new dealer at Tucson as he unpacked his wares to sell.  I high graded out the very best specimens he had for sale in manageable sizes.  Some of the plates were 2 to 3 feet across.  No damage to any of these fine, displayable specimens.  Their color is richer than most stilbite specimens found coming from India these days and more reminiscent of stellerite.  The stilbites are translucent and the heulandites when present are nearly clear.  All of these specimens are priced well below what they normally would be due to the fair price I purchased them at.  A great small specimen with a large, well exposed heulandite measuring 3.5 cm and attractive stilbites to 3.8 cm.  Overall size is 10.5 x 7 x 5 cm and the specimen stands on edge for better display.  A fine specimen for only 40$!!!
