Quartz (Japan Law Twin, Floater)
Cabinet, 10.1 x 8.3 x 2.8 cm
Otomezawa Mine, Yamanishi Prefecture, Japan
Ex. Richard Hauck
This piece, exchanged out of an old collection in the Paterson (New Jersey) museum, is unusual in that the two portions of the Japan Law twin are so asymmetric. The whole piece is a floater with no contact, though it has a little spot of damage on one edge, and also on the tip of the small 2 cm associated prismatic crystal. Really, it can be displayed any which way and is a very different style of twin, from Japan or anywhere!
