Seen here is a 773 gram polished Chinga meteorite. The quarter-cut specimen was found in Turvinskaya, Russia and has been cut and polished on two sides. The rest of the meteorite retains its natural light brown crust, creating a dramatic contrast.
I bought this awesome amethyst stalactite slice (from Uruguay) at Astro Gallery of Gems in New York. They have an amazing selection for sale as well as a world class display gallery. Check out their Facebook or website astrogallery.com #eyecandy #amethyst #quartz #astrogalleryofgems #gemstonesrule
Paul Simon — one of the world's greatest living songwriters — was recently spotted looking at amber at the Astro Gallery of Gems in New York. Perhaps shopping for inspiration, the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer evoked images of amber and gold in his 2010 song "Love and Blessings".
