Specimen # 200738
Mineral: Quartz
Location: Serra do Cipo, Sete Lagoas, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Size: 10.9 x 7.8 x 7.0 cm


A landscape covered with a crown of beautiful slender, transparent quartz crystals. The crystal morphology on these crystals is very distinctive – instead of the more usual six faces at the termination, there are three. The crystals are sharp and lustrous and radiate upward from a base of a sparkly micaceous mineral, I assume cookeite but it has not been analyzed. In excellent condition, a beautiful display piece from the Gerald Panneton collection.
