This IS a rock with both cool history and locality! The thin layer of green pyro coats massive quartz and small quartz crystals on two sides of the specimen (it could perhaps be broken in half to find veins inside, too). This is a famous find, once noted in literature I am told. It was clearly found at the same time and owned by the same person as the preceding specimen. There was only one old paper label noting the collection date, for the two pieces together. This piece DOES have an original catalogued label as shown, in addition to the dated paper label also shown.
