6.4 x 3.5 x 3 cm. One of the famous Calcite after Glauberite psuedomorphs from Arizona, this fine specimen contains a classic penetration twin, well-preserved and lovely. Very few of these in this size have come across my path over the years, probably attesting to both their scarcity and desirabilty. A classic in its own right.
4.4 x 2.9 x 1.8 cm. A fascinating pseudomorph of gypsum that has replaced the original glauberite crystal, retaining razor-sharp form - the result looking like something man-made or a crystal model in a textbook! It is a pristine floater. This is an old and very unusual Arizona specimen.

4.1 x 2.9 x 2.3 cm. This California glauberite specimen (not a pseudo) is a flattened crystal, in this case with clusters of small crystals sticking out of both sides. Ex. Carlton Davis Collection.
4.9 x 3.1 x 2.9 cm. This is a razor-sharp pseudomorph of gypsum after flattened rhombs of glauberite, an old-timer specimen from Camp Verde in Arizona.
New finds in New Jersey are always exciting, and this recent find of superb pseudomorphs of prehnite after glauberite got a lot of attention. It was a small find, and the specimens were snapped up quickly. We got manye of the best. An excellent and well-defined crystal of 3 cm is the star of this one. 6 x 5 x 3.5 cm
New New Jersey finds are always exciting, and this discovery last year of a pocket of super-sharp, gorgeous green pseudomorphs of prehnite after glauberite was a real treat! We bought many of the available specimens from this pocket, all that were at the show back then. This was the largest specimen in this update, with crystals to 3 cm. Some of these crystal casts are open on the front, so you can see their hollow structure. What we describe here as prehnite “crystals”, for the sake of simplicity, are actually hollow prehnite casts of the original glauberite crystals, with the beautiful mint-green prehnite (very difficult to photograph and prettier in person) perfectly retaining the form of the glauberite crystals! Though prehnite pseudomorphs have been found in New Jersey before, these new ones are exceptional for their exquisite form and bright color. 6.5 x 6.5 x 4.5 cm
We have recently offered some specimens from an exciting new New Jersey find of prehnite pseudomorphing glauberite crystals. This pseudomorphed material actually serves as the MATRIX for this very unusual specime from the find, with sharp calcite crystals sitting on top! Super calcite! 4.2 x 2.5 x 2.3cm
A RARE, undamaged and NOT DYED, floater cluster of lustrous, cream-colored calcite crystals after glauberite from the 50 plus year old find from the famous Campe Verde District of Arizona. Nearly ALL of the crystals that came to market a number of year ago were dyed blue-green, so this is a RARE opportunity to obtain an undyed one. 4.5 x 3.8 x 3.6 cm
New New Jersey finds are always exciting, and this is a FINE specimen from a very small find last year from which we got the best specimens! Prehnite pseudomorphs have been found in New Jersey before, but this find was exceptional for the sharpness of the crystals. This is not only a sizeable specimen from the find, but it shows very distinct pseudomorphed crystals of a fine, light seafoam green. 11.8 x 5.7 x 4.2cm

This is a LARGE and SIGNIFICANT specimen from a very exciting find not too long back in New Jersey, of prehnite that has replaced the original glauberite crystals, retaining their form. This one has it all, the best features of the best specimens from this find: bright mint-green color, sharp crystals, and fine coverage. These pseudos had been found before there, but rarely in this quality. 15.8 x 9.2 x 7.8 cm

What was once a flower-like, cluster of glauberite, is now quartz. The original glauberite has disappeared, leaving just a hollow shell. The largest crystal is 2.0 cm in length. Fascinating!
