Smokey Quartz with Goethite (Onegite)- USA classic
stock #AX-35-128
Teller County
Colorado, United States
5 x 3.2 x 2.7 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $180


A very well*-formed example of Goethite crystals on a Smokey Quartz prism. The Quartz is unusual in that it is doubly terminated and in very good condition. The "Ongeite" is in blocky curved rhombic crystals and stacked groups. In much better condition and distinct form that we usually see, this is from an older Northeast collection obtained from Lazard Cahn (no label however) in the early half of the 20th century. A distinctive and classic American specimen these are unlike anything else from any other locality. A few areas of the Quartz have red staining that is also typical of this region.
