Dolomite, Quartz

Dolomite, Quartz

Specimen # 100530
Mineral: Dolomite, Quartz
Location: Brumado (Bom Jesus dos Meiras), Bahia, Brazil
Size: 6.5 x 3.4 x 3.4 cm
Price: $300.00 CAD

Quantity:

This piece features a slender quartz crystal which is almost enveloped by a cluster of sharp, twinned dolomite crystals. The dolomite crystals are a very pale golden colour to almost colourless, and the quartz is colourless/transparent - then there is a surface coating of hematite on both minerals, giving the overall appearance seen in the photographs. 

The dolomite crystals on this specimen are fantastic. They are sharp twins up to 2 cm across, with internal colour zoning - they have pale internal golden colour at the terminations and are nearly colourless at the core. The hematite couating on the dolomites is selective - only certain faces are coated, while others are completely free of hematite. It's not easy to find top calibre collection-worthy dolomite crystals, particularly of this habit.

In excellent condition, no damage (except directly on the underside as displayed).  Sits perfectly for display.

This is a great specimen!
