Specimen # 201057
Mineral: Quartz
Location: Sao Geraldo do Baixio, Doce Valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Size: 10.5 x 1.6 x 0.5 cm


This is a beautiful crystallized quartz shard – it is sharp and lustrous with intricate crystallization patterns and a nicely developed pair of terminations at the top (the bottom is also fully crystallized). For most of its length, this crystal appears to have only four prism faces, the two others being so narrow as to be barely visible. A fine specimen from the John S. White quartz collection.
