PENNSYLVANIA CRUDE OIL, SP-42 Appalachian Basin, Pennsylvania and Michigan Basin, Michigan. Two crude oils consisting of saturated paraffin hydrocarbon compounds available - light (sweet) and heavy (sour). Pennsylvania Crude is mostly a light sweet crude that does not have the high levels of sulfur that other crude oils have. Some available in 4 mL, 40 mL, 100 mL and 250 mL bottles. The "sour" heavy crude is also available from the Michigan Basin. We will be updating the petroleum section soon. Not all sizes available for every type. Inquire for locations.
40ml bottle - $12.00 each Some other sizes and locations available.
Smaller two-bottle sets of one each type also available until stock runs out, 4 mL each, (1 sweet and one sour), but check availability.

SPESSARTINE GARNET, SP-45D. China. Lustrous crystal clusters and masses.
Two colors - orange-red (what many consider the "typical" spessartine color); and
deep wine to bright red. Some
on matrix with smoky quartz and/or feldspar and mica. Inquire if
TEKTITE (Lei gong mo) SP-57 - Impact Crater Melted Rock. Guangdong, China. Tektites are pieces of glass formed when a large meteorite strikes the Earth. They look similar to
obsidian glass but chemically can be differentiated from obsidian. Tektites are closer to shale
in composition. These "splash-form" tektites
have rounded, aerodynamic shapes such as spheres, tear-drops, dumbbells, and disks.
THENARDITE, SP - 61. California.
Dark gray to black sharp crystals and groups of this
classic evaporate mineral. Beautiful crystals for the species
