Specimen # 101944
Mineral: Quartz, Epididymite
Location: Quartz, var. Smoky Quartz, Epididymite, Mount Malosa, Zomba District, Malawi

The upper half of this slender quartz crystal is shot through with epididymite needles, up to 1.5 cm long. The quartz crystal has smoky zones, and is sharp and lustrous. The lower end of the crystal is fully recrystallized. In excellent condition, no damage except one minor edge chip part way down, hard to make out.

Lots of epididymite in this one – a neat piece.
