Quartz - optically clear
Peñas Blancas, San Pablo de Borbur
Boyacá, Colombia
5.3 x 3.7 x 2.2 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $380
new year 2021

Some of the world's clearest and most perfect Quartz has come from the finds in the ridge above the Peñas Blancas Emerald Mines in Boyacá, Colombia. This is an incredibly clean highly lustrous example, one of a small carefully selected suite we obtained at the mine. The luster is brilliant and almost impossible to see in a photograph. This zone has recently produced a lot of good to fine Quartz but very close exam finds that there are very few truly perfect examples, nearly all have at least some chips or rough spots on terminations. This is a remarkably limpid and flawless piece that can act as a prism to make rainbows. Nothing like the average material from here, this is textbook perfect. As is sometimes seen at this locale this piece has some extra faces in corners adding some nice modifications.
