Amazing! The Pikes Peak region of Colorado has been producing fine specimens since the late 1870’s. However at the beginning of 2000 when Joe Dorris dug deeper into the decomposed granite, he discovered an extensive pegmatite swarm that held an unusually high number of pockets (mairolitic cavities). Mining is expensive and costs rose, but on the 13th June 2011 fortunes changed - his team discovered the aptly named ‘Lucky Monday pocket’, the best smoky quartz and amazonite pocket ever found in Colorado. This pocket was horseshoe shaped, each side 0.75m across penetrating the wall 1.5m, the most exceptional find in 140 years of mining. There are great detailed published accounts of the excitement of the find ‘whooping into the forest’ and the extraction and cleaning of specimens. Just look at this fantastic specimen, blocky amazonite of amazing sky-blue colour and beautiful crystal form, with superb tapering and flattened prisms of smoky quartz that appear deep black in colour, but reveal transparency and ‘root-beer’ colour in light. This exceptional combination of minerals is world-class and a ‘Mineralogical Classic’, and when one thinks of the Crystal Peak area of Pike’s Peak, they instantly spring to mind. It was great to catch up briefly with Joe and Krystal Dorris at Tucson gem show. What a find! Maybe one day there will be another lucky Monday 😎 #minerals#gemstones#gems#mineralogy#crystals#crystal#mining#treasure#eureka#fineminerals#geology#colorado#crystalpeak#amazingnature#nature#blue#quartz#amazonite#discovery#instagood#instadaily

This beautiful Rose Quartz sphere is displaying a "star" or "Asterism" effect caused by light reflecting on densely packed, tiny, needle like Rutile inclusions aligned perpendicular to the light. This effect happens in many different gem stones like Sapphires, Rubies, Garnet, Diopside, Spinel, various types of Quartz, and sometimes Beryl and Moonstone. The star on this Rose Quartz sphere is one of the best we have ever seen and we have many smaller star Rose Quartz spheres that will available in our next shop update! We hope you all enjoyed learning about Asterisms and stay tuned for big announcements coming soon!🎶Koresma-Turquoise💕✨
