A superb cluster of elongated quartz crystals from the Ganesh Himal Massif in Nepal. The quartz crystals are accompanied by white albite feldspar, providing striking contrast.  The quartz has good lustre, along with some sparkle from the included chlorite. In excellent condition (a couple of quartz tips are truncated). From the Tracy Kimmel collection, originally from the John White collection (label included) and John had acquired it from Collectors’ Edge. This is a spectacular display piece.
