CR1127,Pollucite: This is a very nice, and large, piece of pollucite with a small pale pink tourmaline on the back (right). The front (left) has distinct crystal faces and a minor amount of damage. The back is deeply etched, which apparently is quite common for these.

CR1202, Quartz with chlorite, Baluchistan, Pakistan, 100.2 g, 5.6 x 5.1 x 3.6, $35, Nice small cabinet specimen. The heavily included quartz point in the lower foreground has a sharp termination and the one above it is irregular, but not damaged. The far side is contacted.
CR1203, Quartz with chlorite, Baluchistan, Pakistan, 30.3 g, 3.7 x 4.5 x 1.5 $15. The back of this is partially covered with irregular, smaller crystals. Looks like a "floater" with no obvious attachment point.
