Epidote, Quartz
Jinkouhe, Ebian Co., Leshan Prefecture, Sichuan Province, China
Cabinet, 15.2 x 10.8 x 6.9 cm
From an exciting find in China around 2 years ago -- wonderful green epidote crystals on clusters of quartz. I had some of them from the first discovery, but they all sold, so I was thrilled to get my hands on some more from a second large pocket hit there not too long afterwards (many of them even more richly decorated with epidote crystals!). They are all gone now, as far as I know. This is a superb representative of the find, with fine gemmy quartzes beautifully isolated. A good-sized piece as well. Definitely at the very top for this find; this specimen has it all!
