Lower Paleolithic, probably Heidelberg Man, proto-axe on a pebble. Flint, in excellent condition, height 4 1/8". Legal find from Reculver Cliffs, Kent, UK. A very old, simple hard-hammer percussion proto-axe. The pebble itself is almost entirely intact with the removal of a few flakes to give a chopping edge.

An extremely pretty and completely untreated/Unheated from Mozambique weighing 1.04ct. The colour is a deep crimson red - in fact it could well be the case that this could qualify as being ‘Pigeon’s Blood’ red due to the deep saturation of colour in the stone - a darker hue but with gorgeous red flashes as evidenced in our pics. The stone is, at this price point (and even 10 times higher, come to mention it) inevitably included and silky but it remains a delightful example nonetheless with...

Our pics do not fully do justice to this magnificent and rare, one of a kind gemstone from the beautiful isle of Madagascar. Weighing an impressive 4.06ct, this gem perfectly exhibits the precise combination of pink and orange which make up the famed and revered ‘Padparadscha’ colour in sapphire. Our pics are, on our monitor at least, a *tad* less orange than the original, which as advised is a truly perfect combination of the two colours. The first 2 pics are a more accurate colour.The ston...
