Specimen # 201061
Mineral: Quartz
Location: Collier Creek Mine, Mt. Ida, Montgomery Co., Arkansas, USA
Size: 9.9 x 9.7 x 7.0 cm


This is a superb Mt. Ida quartz specimen. It is a tower of sharp, lustrous crystals, complete all around. Most of the crystals on this specimen are water-clear, and there is some internal rainbow colour. In excellent condition, no damage. I would display this specimen supported a bit to stand as in the first photo, although doesn’t need any support if on a higher shelf (it leans a little forward). From the John S. White quartz collection, this is a spectacular piece.
