Epidote, Quartz
Hongquizhen Quarry, Meigu Co., Liangshan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan Province, China
Cabinet, 15.4 x 12.9 x 9.9 cm
From the find around two years ago in China -- a large plate of big quartz crystals jutting up from a rich field of sparkly, olive green epidotes. That big quartz crystal measures 7 cm in height by over 3 cm across. This specimen is really fine for the find, not just for its size, but also for the isolation of the quartzes on the rich carpet of epidote (rather than little patches of epidote here and there) .
