AMETHYST  QUARTZ WITH GOETHITE

CAMFIELD STATION, 

NORTHERN TERRITORY

This is a really nice piece as you can see with a sprinkling of goethite for contrast and interest with a subtle purple colouring of the crystals.Close inspection of the crystals reveals no damage, which is pretty good, considering the amount adorning it. This is a good example of the wonderful assortment of variance in colour and form of amethyst from the location and is very aesthetically pleasing.

CANDLEWAX QUARTZ

WALLAROO, TORRINGTON, N.S.W.

This little specimen is so glossy and white it is hard to capture its true features. It positively glows. With classic candlewax growth and perfect tip, I could find no fault.The piece  is a little beauty with some tiny crystals clumping at the base on one side. 

A nice little specimen from another of the Torrington area's wealth of mines and it is much better in person.
