"Mother Earth’s Finest Creations"
Granada Gallery curates some of the finest collector grade mineral specimens available on today’s market. We offer a wide range of one of a kind individual pieces as well as large quantities of semi-precious stones.
"The natural Phenomena"
Gogottes are exclusively found in Fontainebleau, France in a specific formation which dates back to the Oligocene Period, and is 34-28 million years old. The gogottes themselves formed between 8000 - 5000 years ago. Gogottes are formed from quartz crystals and calcium carbonate. They were produced when superheated water extruded through crevices into a basin of extremely fine white silicate sand. The water was saturated with calcium carbonate (Limestone). The swirls and eddies of the water were captured in the gradually concreting stone, forming the most wonderful natural sculptures.
"Amethyst from Urumining"
In the northern part of Uruguay, in the heart of the Artigas province Urumining is working in the amethyst and agate rich fields of “La Bolsa”. In this region the most colour intense amethysts are found and the mine is profiting from an abundance of high quality agates. Granada Gallery’s focus on Mine to Market material is greatly enhanced through this specialized partnership with Urumining.
"Avant Mining, Treasures from the Zigras Mine"
Quartz is a silicon oxide mineral that usually is found as milky translucent veins, but on rare occasions the space gets
to form into beautiful colourless transparent crystals. The quartz's from Arkansas are generally considered to be the highest quality, forming complex clusters of stunning crystals.
Avant Mining, located in Jessieville Arkansas, produces the finest quartz crystals in the world.
Their clarity, luster, phantoms, variety, and large size give them this distinction.
