Dimensions: 3 cm tall, 1 cm wide

Location: Jeffrey Quarry, Jeffrey, Pulaski Co., Arkansas, USA

Details & Highlights: Rock Currier Collection No. 3818 

What appears to me a tether to the underworld is actually thread that connects to a small yellow circular specimen label, a signature identifier of many smaller pieces in the Rock H. Currier Collection. It makes an occasional facet pop yellow at the right angle. I enjoy this expression of the simultaneity of presence and absence, a tribute to the extended influence of work done well and with sincere passion on future people that may never have had the opportunity to know its initial creator. People like Rock H. Currier, R.A. (Allan Lang) Langheinrich and K.C. Pandey who found ways to embrace their love for rocks, minerals and fossils and share their life's work with the world.

Secondary minerals: Hematite

Details & Highlights: Hematite-included over-hyphenated Amethyst A spectacular piece of double-terminated Hematite-included over-hyphenated Amethyst on matrix from a legendary pocket at the Purple 💜 Mine. This private location in South Carolina was the spot Bryan Major @thecrystalcollector discovered a huge pocket of stunning, lustrous, museum-grade amethyst with nail polish red splashes of Hematite. Note the phantom growth visible in each crystal in the video. Studio Mineralia was lucky enough to be there when it made its public debut and procured this directly from Bryan.

Primary minerals: Hematite-coated Apophyllite and Stilbite

Matrix: Floater

Dimensions: 3"x4" total size, 'large cabinet'

Location: Maharashtra, India

Year of discovery: 2018

Details & Highlights: The Hematite coats only half of this strikingly unique,

free-standing Apophyllite and Stilbite from Maharashtra, India.

The Hematite gives an indication of orientation during  and after the process of crystallization which is uncommon in a matrix-free 'floater' like this.

A truly unique piece of our planet, nicknamed 'Q-Bert'
