Quartz, Inclusions

Specimen # 201038
Mineral: Quartz, Inclusions
Location: Guangxi Zhuang A.R., China
Size: 4.5 x 2.2 x 1.5 cm


A sharp, lustrous quartz crystal with green fibrous inclusions, in a column running up its centre. Sits perfectly, as the base is a flat cut. The inclusions have been analyzed using Raman by John Rakovan – analysis was conducted through the prism face and also where they are exposed at the cut base, but no definitive identification was possible with this method. In excellent condition, minor chipping. A cool inclusions specimen from the John S .White quartz collection.
