Gemstone and Crystal Pairs




For this section we have matched up a crystal with a gemstone cut from that same species, displayed on a custom engraved acrylic base. 





OKAA-022     Peridote     Sapat Gali, Naran, Pakistan.  An attractive single crystal of rich color typical for the species.  2.6 x 1.5 x 1.4 cm.  The crystal is in good condition with base contact only.  The gemstone is approximately one ct in weight.  $450








OKF-420      Titanite     Capelinha, Minas Gerais, Brazil.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain Collection.  Prev. Ward’s Minerals of Rochester, 1976.  This nice specimen barely fits in a perky box diagonally… 4.8 x 2.3 x 1 cm twin.  Fully formed with only a minimal area of contact on its base and a couple of very tiny nicks.  Transparent to translucent with nice gemmy areas throughout with excellent luster on most surfaces.  Sharp reentrant angle and interesting surface growth features. An outstanding example of the species.  This specimen now accompanies a faceted stone of .5 ct.  It is a nice oval but far from flawless as should be expected with this material.  The cut is good and the inclusions moderate.  It is a nice example of this material which is rare to find in facetable rough.  Sorry that I could not get a better close-up but the picture is a very good representation of the stone's color and clarity.  The crystal and stone sit on a custom engraved acrylic base (with a small dab of adhesive to allow stability to the crystal).  A nice price for an attractive display.  285$








OKAA-017     Corundum  (var. Ruby or some might say a pink sapphire)    Mysore District, Karnantaka, India.   This large section of crystal prism is sawn and ground concave on both ends.  It measures 4.1 x 3.5 x 2.2 cm thick.  Inclusions indicative of "star" material are present.  The cab measures .9 x .7 cm and shows a light star effect.  With the custom base it makes a nice display.    $700








OKAA-018    Quartz (var. Citrine)     Yuzhnyi Mine, Chelyabinsk Oblast, Southern Urals Region, Russia.  This large citrine point (natural) measures 10.1 x 6.2 x 6.1 cm overall.  It has a tip ding as is clearly seen in the images but still warrants being in someone's collection.  It has large gemmy areas and once again it is NATURAL... so rare for citrine.  It comes with a large oval cut stone measuring .7 cm wide and weighing in at 45 ct.  Together with a custom base it makes for a nice display.  The point is sawn flat on its base.  $400
