Quartz, Chlorite

Specimen # 201019
Mineral: Quartz
Location: Ganesh Himal Massif, Dhading District, Bagmati Pradesh, Nepal
Size: 9.0 x 6.0 x 5.3 cm


A cluster of beautiful Tessin habit quartz crystals with chlorite inclusions from the Himalayas. Within the crystals, the chlorite inclusion is a narrow strip, while the rest of each crystal is clear (one can see this in the photos of three different angles of the main crystal, rotated one to the next).

This is an exquisite piece – sharp, top lustre, in pristine condition. A superb specimen from the John White collection.
