Specimens

In addition to standard abreviations (FL, SW, LW, PH) please note the following used to describe LW FL:  P=pink, OP=orange-pink, BP=bluish-pink, CP=creamy pink, CB= creamy bluish, CW=creamy whitish. Also:  TC=Terlingua calcite, HC=hydrocarbon inclusions.

Nearly 4" high x 2 3/4" wide; 248 g.; couple of HC inclusions; some green FL (SW) chalcedony on top of piece; LW = P + BP with a yellowish (SW & LW) area on back

blue_tcc_5104

Nearly 3" wide x 2 3/4" high; 256 g.; lots of green FL (SW) tiny chalcedony balls with quartz crystal terminations at upper left make this a special piece; also several H.C. inclusions (FL creamy white LW); LW = P

 

Nearly 3" high x 2 1/4" wide; 210 g.; sharp FL zones, lines and dots; some green FL on back; LW = P

blue_tcc_5106

About 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"; 257 g.; LW = light pink

 

About 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"; a shade over 1 lb with some baked clay matrix; very unusual brownish (daylight) zones in the center of the piece that FL normally but the PH fades a little faster than normal; 
LW = P plus BP, CP & a hint of OP

blue_tcc_5108

About 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"; 384 g.; cleaved crystal terminations on back; LW = P with specks of BP & OP

 

About 3 1/2" high x 3" wide; 501 g.; dings on the face and some barite adding to the weight discount this piece; 
LW = mostly P with several BP zones

blue_tcc_5110

About 4" long x 2 1/2" high; 456 g.; massive with excellent FL; large triangular zone on far right grades from pale pink (daylight) at the top to dark, nearly raspberry pink at the bottom - highly unusual!; dings at top left detract slightly from the otherwise superb piece; LW = "hot" pink with some BP

 

3 1/2" high x 3 1/4" wide; 674 g.; solid chunk of crystalline TC; dozens of small triangular zones throughout this piece; 
LW = shades of P

blue_tcc_5112

About 4" wide x 3 3/4" high; about 1 3/4 lbs.; massive with excellent FL but dings give this a special price; "hot" P with some BP

blue_tcc_5114

Over 4 1/2" wide x nearly 4" high; about 2 1/3 lbs.; FL is slightly above average for a crystalline piece; displays well; 
LW = OP,P,BP

 

About 3 1/2" wide x 3 3/4" high; just a bit less than 2 lbs.; cut by several Mn layers; large FL zones with strong FL on all sides; 
LW = P, CP, BP

blue_tcc_5116

A shade over 5" wide x 3" high; almost 2 1/2 lbs.; pink on nearly pure white (daylight); kind of a strange piece, coloring suggests massive but the structure is more crystalline; large FL zones on this side, smaller zones on back; LW = P, BP

 

3 3/4" wide x 3 1/4" high; about 1/2 lb.; a thin massive piece with hackly surfaces; almost entirely pale pink (daylight); FL doesn't get any better than this; LW = P with a very slight orange tint plus a small area of BP

blue_tcc_5118

About 3 3/4" x 3 3/4"; over 1 1/2 lbs.; T.C. sandwiched between 2 Mn layers; surface calcite on bottom has butterscotch yellow FL; LW = pale P, some BP and a relatively large FL HC zone on the back

 

Almost 6 1/2" wide x 4 1/2" high; over 3 lbs.; nearly perfect cluster of scalenohedral crystals on far right coated with lots of green FL chalcedony and tiny quartz crystals; the vug at top-center has clusters of quartz crystals and chalcedony and aragonite (?) balls; lots of quartz/chalcedony (FL green SW) on back of the piece; overall, crystalline specimens rarely get much better than this one; LW = light P, CP, BP

blue_tcc_5120

About 4 1/2" high x 3 1/2" wide; almost 2 lbs.; lots of HC inclusions; some pink (daylight) and some of a muddy grayish color probably from minute amounts of HC; lots of tiny FL zones; a 3/4" diameter aragonite (?) ball on one end FL's green SW; LW=light to dark pink with minor BP, CP

 

Over 6" long x 4 1/2" peak height x 4" thick; 5 3/4 lbs.; much light to dark pink on white (daylight); massive with 2 paper thin layers on the bottom 1/4th of the piece; excellent FL; LW is almost solid pink with a couple of small BP zones along the top edge. Probably the best piece I've offered on my website.
