I bought this intriguing cabochon to make a pendant for myself. I thought it would be fun to know that I was wearing a rare gemstone pendant that has and eerie supernatural glow whether anyone else realized it or not. It will make me feel otherworldly, I think.

When I get my short wave UV lamp, I think this will be the first fluorescent specimen I look at. It is so beautifully colorful. I am so glad Fender Minerals started listing these fluorescent specimens, especially with Maryanne's wonderful photos showing what to expect.

I am so excited to add these fluorescent minerals from Fender Minerals to my collection. I don't have a short wave UV light yet, but when I do I am going to sit in the middle of the floor with all my fluorescent minerals around me, turn the lights out, and pretend I am on the surface of another planet. Sounds like the perfect plan to me.

All the specimens in my collection are favorites of mine, otherwise I wouldn't have acquired them in the first place. This one, however, is my new absolute favorite. It looks like an alien spacecraft, with it's missile-shaped nose-cone, turrets, life pods, and the shimmering blue metallic surface. If I ever see an alien spacecraft in real life, and it doesn't look like this, I am going to be so disappointed.

I have looked at these carved Septarian fetishes on other sites, and this is, by far, the most beautiful one I have seen. The siltstone in this one is darker than the others I have seen and makes a better contrast against the yellow of the calcite. It is very striking. Shipping from Fender Minerals was very fast, and all the items in the shipment were securely and safely packed.

If this were purple, I would call it my one-eyed, one-horned, purple-people-eater. Orange-people-eater just doesn't have that special ring to it, but it is still what I would imagine such a creature to look like. I love all these interesting little mineral creatures I get from Fender Minerals. They always have the most unique and one-of-a-kind pieces.

There is so much sparkle and glitter in this stone that it is a party in a rock. Confetti is the perfect description. It is so beautiful and energetic. It is a pleasure to do business with Fender Minerals. Maryanne is friendly and helpful and a master at packaging.

This reminds me of a beautiful sparkling sea creature rising up out of an open clam shell. One of those octopus that can change its color and the texture of its skin--its glittering tentacle rising up to capture its prey. I so enjoy opening boxes from Fender Minerals containing my treasures. It is better than Christmas day, and each treasure touches my heart and sparks my imagination.

Majestic in size, shape, and color, this is an impressive specimen. Red calcite is said to increase energy and help with problem-solving, so this beauty is getting a prominent place on my desk. I have purchased some amazing mineral specimens from Fender Minerals over the years, and I am always impressed with their selection and personal service.

Pieces like this remind me of the amazing creativity in nature. There is a stark contrast between the smooth, glowing yellow calcite crystal and the glittering gray plate in it sitting on. The neutral gray matrix is brought to life by the shimmering druzy dusted across its surface both top and bottom, and the yellow calcite crystal glows like a candle flame. I am so pleased to add this exceptional piece to my collection.

Just when I thought selenite couldn't be any better, Maryanne brings out these clear selenite specimens, and I fall in love with selenite all over again. These pieces are remarkable. They are beautiful to look at and have such a peaceful energy.

About

Welcome to Fender Minerals offering Crystals Semiprecious Stones Minerals Amethyst Pyrite Agates Geodes Quartz Gems and Gemstones

Welcome to Fender Minerals. Discover why our customers keep coming back for more!

If you are new to Fender Minerals we honor it all, from the simplest rock to the grandest gem. We dig some, buy some, swap some. We always clean the minerals so they arrive at your home ready for display.

Many of our mineral samples are hand collected by us or close friends without use of power tools or heavy equipment.

We are totally obsessed with rocks and minerals. We started a mineral and gem business in 1996 just to "pay for our habit". Our customers encouraged us to go online so in 2011 we launched this shop.

Thanks again for visiting, we look forward to hearing from you.

My niece, Kate Nilsen, has acquired part of my business. Black Dog Gemstones of Texas will offer the same high quality, ethically sourced gemstones you have come to expect from Fender Minerals.
