Epidote, Quartz
Pampa Blanca, Ica Department, Peru
Small Cabinet, 6.8 x 3.8 x 1.8 cm
An elegant spray of deep bottle-green crystals of epidote, with the unusually aesthetic addition of a transparent quartz crystal lying across the bottom of the spray. Just a very few of the terminations are incomplete, and they are hard to find amongst the naturally rough terminations of the other crystals. This is a super example for the size of a famous find of the mid-1990s brought to market by Harvey Gordon at the time.
