    OK...I can't rival JBL's stoopid included amber (just kiddin' [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] ) but for the rock lovers out there, I thought I'd offer a nice group of minerals from my collection. While the stones are small ("thumbnail" size), this is typical of many of these minerals.

    This lot consists of:

    1) An azurite "blueberry"...natural blue color and form
    2) A piece of amazonite (personally collected by ME which, alone, should make this collection worth a fortune... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img] ); Moorefield Mine, Amelia Courthouse, VA
    3) A Vera Cruz amethyst crystal...water clear, light purple; Mexico
    4) A hexagonal sapphire crystal (corundum)
    5) A hexagonal ruby crystal (corundum) which fluoresces a spectacular blood red under long-wave UV light (a black light)
    6) A chrysoprase nodule; Pakistan
    7) A nice double-terminated "Herkimer diamond" quartz crystal from Herkimer County, NY; Herkimers are HOT!
    8) A twinned staurolite crystal otherwise known as "fairystone"
    9) An electric blue cavansite crystal...small but absolutely beautiful especially when studied with a magnifier. From Poona, India

    I will add a photo of these crystals as soon as I can so you can see the size. The sapphire and ruby are NOT cut gemstones but the raw, natural corundum crystal as mined.

    I will open the bidding at $5; I will ship international and pay for shipping.

    I'm adding the photo AND I added a piece of pink halite to the group. This might flouresce under short wave UV light.



    The larger bottom photos show close up of the ruby crystal fluorescing red under a black light; twinned staurolite crystal (fairystone) and the electric blue cavansite floater crystal from Poona, India.

    Well, I have been called 'dumb as a rock', so I'll start with $5! Rock on!

    Ooooh--enhyyydrooo--drool. I'm thinking about a 3" diameter, 2lb polished amythest sphere. Or, maybe, 1/2 of a fossilized pine cone with seeds visible from Patagonia. We will, we will--Rock You!!

    Oh yeah, and $12 for the little (thumbnail) rocks. Better thumbnails than thumbs...
