Item Description

A showy and excellent specimen of water-clear, glassy, tabular quartz crystals with a very distinct curved faden or "string" running the length of the piece from a recent find in Pakistan. Most of the crystals are doubly terminated and the piece is nearly a floater, with only a small contact at the base. This piece has a rich, very interesting, preferential chlorite coating. The large quartz crystal is contacted on one end, but has no damage, per se. These are facinating specimens.
