This years Gem and Mineral show in Massachusetts was fabulous. I had committed to buy some beautiful stones from one of my dealers while he was in Brazil. ( He sent photos while he was down there. I love that I got the first look at everything). The Smokey Quartz Points are from the same Mine as my huge Smokey Quartz Point from last year’s show. Absolutely stunning. The biggest one is half Smokey Quartz, and half golden Citrine. The others are dark Morion Smokey. Unreal. The other insane piece from Brazil is a two foot long polished Smokey Quartz Point, which is a third sparkling clear Quartz, with a huge Lithium Phantom on the end. I couldn’t leave it there. It’s spectacular.
I was sold out of big Obsidian Spheres, so I contacted my dealer in Mexico, and let him know I needed more of those. I bought twenty. They are five, six, and seven inches. I bought ten more pendants. I came close to wiping him out.I bought a thirty pound Rose Quartz Sphere, and a ten pound one, loaded with stars. I bought Carnelian Flames, and killer Labradorite with great flash.
I found some unusual things, a Quartz Cluster with crimson Hübnerite growing on it, from Peru. Very rare. Some Amphibole Quartz, an Amethyst with Smokey Quartz from Madagascar. More Citrine. Bumblebee Jasper. Emerald from Brazil. Ruby in Kyanite Shiva Lingams. I’ll be listing all of them for weeks.
I was blown away by what I found. There’s so much. Time to start typing. Blessings, Judith
