Very rare combination specimen of Kunzite and Morganite with Quartz and Tourmaline on Cleavelandite! I haven't seen a specimen of this combination in at least a decade so it was surprising when I found it in Tucson. The specimen is very aesthetic with the Kunzite pointing inwards towards a Citrine-like Quartz crystal of equal size. The Morganite, which is orangy-pink, sits below the Quartz atop the Cleavelandite matrix. The Kunzite lays atop Cleavelandite blades which are accented by green Tourmaline crystals. Both the Kunzite and Quartz are doubly terminated and the entire specimen is a floater with the back side being completely coated by a Calcitic covering. From the Dara-i-Pech Pegmatite Field, Chapa Dara District, Konar Province (Kunar Province; Nuristan), Afghanistan.

Milenyum Mining cut this 121.65-carat pear-shaped csarite from a 430-gram (2,150-carat) piece of rough. The company said it expects the stone to retail for close to $1 million.

“This may be a 17th C charmstone…where round crystals are found set in silver on a chain for dipping into liquids as charms against disease. Such crystal balls were often found in Northern European burials of the early Middle Ages (especially Germanic, Merovingian and Anglo-Saxon). Meaney suggests these balls were frequently complemented with a sieve-spoon and were mostly found in female burials.”

Stone tools dating from between 26,000 and 19,000 years ago have been found at six locations near the coast of North America. These discoveries are fact not theory. The new findings date much earlier than Clovis - bringing them into chronological contemporeignty with the Solutrean (known primarily from Iberia and SW France). Further, chemical analysis of a stone knife found in Virginia has revealed it was made from flint with an origin in France.

Known as hag stones, holey stones or witch stones, rocks with a naturally occuring hole in them are said to give humans the ability to peer into the world of Faerie when they close one eye and peer through the hole. They are considered by cultures around the world to be a protective amulet when hung on a cord.
