Specimen # 201023
Mineral: Quartz
Location: Irai, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil
Size: 7.9 x 7.8 x 1.1 cm


A superb quartz flower from Irai. Forming in thin seams in the basalt, these quartz flowers often have very limited room to grow and therefore crystallize outward from a central point along a relatively flat plane. This specimen has fantastic lustre, good transparency, and the crystals are terminated all around. In excellent condition, a wonderful piece from the John White collection.
