Ledermann America Galerie is a store, specializing in Quartz (Amethyst, Ametrine & Citrine) Minerals and Gemstones from South and North America, with a special focus on Bolivia and some exclusive Minerals from this area.
In the southeastern part of the Bolivian territory, between “Puerto Quijarro”,“La Gaiba” Lake and the town of “Rincón del Tigre” we find rich deposits of the quartz family, one of the richest in variety in the planet, ranging from Hyaline Quartz, Smoky Quartz,Rose de France Amethyst, Amethyst, Ametrine; also commonly known as “Bolivianita”, Citrine, and Rose Quartz. The Anahi Mine and the mountain range where it is located, is the only Ametrine deposit in the world. The ametrines that allegedly come from Brazil, are stolen and/or smuggled to the neighboring country. Ametrine is a combination of amethyst and citrine. When this stone is cut by an artist, they produce beams of light like a volcano eruption. But there can also be found citrine crystals, bicolor citrine (also a unique and natural combination) known as “sun and moon” crystals, bicolor amethyst, as well as quartz crystals with inclusions of Amethyst, Citrine, Smoky Quartz and Dendrites. There are exceptional crystals and clusters, some of them museum pieces. There are also Candle Crystals with skeletal habit, with a combination of colors that range from colorless to yellow, orange, violet and purple and that in rare occasions have inclusions of Dendrites.
Aside from this we have beautiful samples of Amethyst from Canada, USA, Mexico, Brazil and Uruguay, all unique in their shape and color.
Our offer include: Clusters, crystals, sawn or hammered stones, to be faceted in a traditional form, also freeforms, which takes advantage and highlights the features of these stones.
We also have beautiful samples of Vivianite, Cassiterite, Phosphophyllite minerals and other curiosities.
World renowned master engravers transform our best crystals into works of art; such as jewelry, engravings and sculptures. In the engravings and sculptures, we endeavor to conserve the most beautiful part of the crystal in its natural state so that the buyer can appreciate this marvelous geologic formation, combined with the artists’ knowledge, fused in one unique masterpiece.
Our mission is to conserve the most beautiful crystals or clusters in their natural state, as a testimony to how rich these precious stone deposits are.
