As s big fan of greens and blues, I’m particularly fond of this beautiful blend of stones unique to our collection. Sparkles even more in person than in the photo!😊💕

This is a beautiful rough stone specimen, and of nice size as well! This shop is an interesting one to browse and purchase from, especially if you’re looking for some less commonly found rough stones and clusters😊👍🏻👍🏽

The varied spectrum of greens really stand out in this unique and generously sized specimen! It makes a fun and eye catching piece for our stone collection. 😊👍🏻👍🏽

Love this stone, as it reminds us of underwater scenery with its light sea blue and gray matrix. A unique addition to our collection from a shop which, apparently specializes in rarer stones and clusters. Beautiful as the photo, or moreso😊💕

This is even more glowing with a beautiful blend of copper tones and silver than I’d anticipated. It has an instant energetic look and feel to me, as well. Very well and carefully packaged, just as my other stones purchased from this shop!😊👍🏻👍🏽

This stone is actually more interesting than I had anticipated. It has a really cool linear structure with a pretty natural sheen as well, even in indirect lighting! 👍🏻👍🏽

Though quite small, this unique stone is not too fragile for us to place with care alongside other stones...so it’s a nice addition of rare stone for our collection! 😊

Again, this specimen appears even prettier and more interesting than I’d anticipated! I had purchased a very very tiny molybdenite sample from another shop in weeks past, but I find this one to be quite a bit less fragile and of an easier to care for size, so I’m very pleased to have this one!😊👍🏻👍🏽

This specimen actually appears to me more interesting in person than I could tell from the photo. And it isn’t too fragile to place with other rough stones in our collection, which is nice for us! Really love the look of this stone😊💕

Wow! We really love this piece. It is true to the photo with the sparkling green showing like a river in the matrix! As it is generously sized, I’m hoping to have it cut to share half with my nephew, who is also quite fond of natural stones😊💕

This stone is VERY different than any I’ve come across, as one can actually feel a smooth hairy ness to it, just as described by the shop owner! A bit more delicate than some, but worth it for the fun uniqueness of it! This shop has quite a few far less commonly found stones to choose from. All arrived quickly and very well packaged too!😊👍🏻👍🏽

These beauties are nicely sized, especially for the price! The pretty blue is true to the photo. And I’m glad there are two in the box, so I am less prone to lose them amongst other stones in our collection. Thank you😊💕

Idiochromatic minerals are "self colored" due to their composition. An example is blue Azurite. Allochromatic minerals are "other colored" due to trace impurities in their composition or defects in their structure as in beryl
