Item Description

A dramatic and wonderful CABINET quartz specimen from the well-known Frossnitz Valley of Austria. A 14.3 cm, doubly terminated, glassy, transparent to translucent is aesthetically perched on partially etched crystals. The DT crystal is nicely accented with brown inclusions in the transparent area and is nearly pristine, with only trivial bruising on the "B" termination. For the quartz collector, there is just so much interesting going on here. Ex Rolf Wein Collection, a noted Alpine specialist.
