Item Description

A fine and unusual looking complementary Hercules Mine schorl small cabinet to the previous Hercules MIne smoky quartz. Complete all-around, this lustrous, jet-black, very well-striated trigonal crystal is dramatically accented by the remarkable strikingly laminar etched termination, that parallels the striations on the prism sides. Very nearly pristine, with only trivial bruising to the termination. Older material, probably from the 1970s to mid-1990s. See the 2002 Mineralogical Record issue, Vol. 33, No. 5 and MINDAT: https://www.mindat.org/loc-11800.html for more information on the mine. Ex Bill Larson San Diego County Pegmatite Collection and long on display at his Pala International shop in Fallbrook. An excellent Hercules Mine schorl with a fascinating termination.
