Hi Don, in my opinion a very unique piece for two reasons: Finding a "real" indicolite with that deep blue colour is not that easy - and elbaites in general are not that common from Mexico. A really nice little jewel of great colour!

Regards
Tobi

Tobi, thank you for your assessment and opinion of the Indicolite crystal from Mexico. It is the only one I have like it. Your thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Don

Perhaps not many specimens, but there is actually a good amount of gold in Ireland....so nice specimens do occur, as above.

A likely source for Irish gold is placer mining in Ireland's rivers, including the rivers of County Wicklow and the "Gold Coast" of County Waterford.[5][6] Other likely ancient sources based on placenames include Slieveanore ("Gold Mountain", County Clare), Tullynore ("Gold Hillock", County Down), Coomanore ("Gold Hollow", County Cork), Luganore ("Gold Hollow", County Tipperary) and Glenanore ("Gold Valley", County Cork).[7][8] Note that the Golden Vale is not named for the metal, but for its high quality soil; the town of Golden, County Tipperary takes its name from the Irish gabhailín, "river fork"; and Shanagolden, County Limerick is from seanghualainn, "old shoulder".[9][10][11]

All gold in the ground in the Republic of Ireland is the property of the state. Recreational gold panning is permitted, but the gold cannot be sold and finds of over 20 flakes or 2 grams (0.064 ozt) must be reported.[12]

Between 1796 and 1860 about 300 kilograms (9,600 ozt) of gold was mined in Ireland, from places including the Gold Mines River, County Wicklow.[13]

In 2008 a major discovery was announced near Clontibret, estimated at 500,000 troy ounces (16,000 kg). The mining is run by Conroy Gold and Natural Resources and Anglo Asian Mining.[14] Total resources could be as high as 20,000,000 troy ounces (620 t).[15][12][16]
