Hubeite, Inesite, Quartz
Cabinet, 14.0 x 6.0 x 5.0 cm
Fengjiashan Mine (Daye Copper mine), Edong Mining District, Daye Co., Huangshi Prefecture, Hubei Province, China
A sparkly coating of hubeite, apophyllite, and secondary quartz microcrystals makes this large quartz point really spectacular! The photos do no accurately show how sparkly and just darned beautiful this specimen is. A few inesite clusters add an extra accent. NOT your average quartz crystal! The sparkles cover 4 faces of the 6-sided quartz point. The other two faces are normal, glassy quartz as you'd expect. 14 x 6 x 5 cm
