Tiffany Stone / Opalized Fluorite / Bertrandite
Tiffany Stone Mystery 8/20 1lb lot - Limited 6 pound offering
Opal Fluorite rough mystery nodules 1 pound 448 gram - 6/25 07
Pictures are of the stones the 1st order will receive.

This is a VERY LIMITED OFFERING for 1 pound lots of select untouched trim saw sized whole nodules. I rarely sell these uncut nodules because what's inside is a mystery until you cut them - this is actually your best chance to find something very special without paying top shelf price! There is some risk of getting some duds, but I have found some of my very best material in these. GOOD LUCK!
Each lot is hand selected to try to make sure you get stones with good potential - just keep in mind that it's nearly impossible to tell until you cut them.

I have at least 5 pounds of similar pieces I can part with so the first 1 pound order will be the exact above lot and the remaining lots will be hand picked and very similar in size (around 2 inches) and look to the pictured lot.

1lb lots - $20.00 each - 3 pounds available

Rare Rough Opalized Fluorite! This material is one of the most scarce, beautiful and unusual stones in the world, this stone only comes from one very small area of beryllium mines in the Utah west desert where they mine (the 4th lightest element) beryllium for use in missile nose cones and many other high-tech metallurgical uses. It is not open to the public for collecting and very little of this material sees anything other than the ore crusher to extract the about 1% to 2% beryllium contained in the opal tuff. Try to find this exquisite gemstone and you'll see that it's not only very rare, it is very scarce. It is a soft to hard opalized stone that forms in very small to 100+ pound "nodules", composed of predominantly opalized fluorite (blues, purples and whites), often with many other minerals such as quartz, dolomite, rhodonite, manganese, beryllium and other surprises. It often has a "crackled" appearance and is sometimes called "Tiffany Stone", "Bertrandite" "Purple Opal" or "Ice Cream Opalite". I call it Opal-Fluorite.
