Quartz (Japan Law Twin)

Specimen # 201055
Mineral: Quartz (Japan Law Twin)
Location: Gunyahang Mine, Sankhuwasabha District, Province No. 1, Nepal
Size: 7.8 x 5.3 x 1.7 cm


A superb Japan Law quartz twin from Nepal. This crystal is razor sharp and incredibly lustrous. The crystal on the left-hand side speaks for itself – water clear, simple, classic form. The crystal on the right has a couple of complex features. Its termination is incredibly cool, like a lake in a hollow surrounded by terminated mountain peaks. All is complete, crystallized.  The second feature about two thirds of the way up the edge of the prism is a hollow, which would have been a contact with another crystal, but that joint released and recrystallized sometime late in the crystallization timeline of this twin. The piece is in exceptional condition, no damage. A truly beautiful Japan Law twin from the John S. White quartz collection.
