Description

Detailed Description

From the John S. White quartz collection, this is a dramatic group of four elongated quartz crystals with dolomite from the Huanggang Mines. These crystals are all doubly-terminated, sharp and with good lustre. Three of the four crystals have reverse-sceptre terminations – the shorter horizontal one near the base of the piece is particularly great. In excellent condition, no damage. Supported to stand as in the first photo, this piece really stands out in a cabinet.
