HOLD Quartz, flattened, doubly terminated
Linopolis, Divino das Laranjeiras, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
12.8 x 5 CM (cabinet)
price: $450


For even the most jaded quartz collector! This is a very different and attractive quartz that is mostly clear but with some internal milky clouds. Very flat and tabular, average is only 1.3 Cm thick, and resembling a fadden but without any "string" visible. To make it a little more exotic, there is a very slight twist to the crystal so it technically a gwendel but just barely! I have not seen any other quite like this and gwendels that are not from alpine clefts are very rare indeed! Ther are two very tiny hard to find chips on the backside of this otherwise it is absolutely pristine,
