Item Description

A gorgeous, water-clear quartz crystal has a wonderfully complex termination and is jauntily angled on the muscovite and quartz matrix on this showy and excellent specimen from the famed La Gardette Mine of France. The crystal has the light golden tint, noted for this locale. Complete all-around and very nearly pristine. Super-trivial, barely visible termination wear is noted, but is certainly not a detraction. Classic material from this well-known locale. Ex Jaime Bird Collection.
