Quartz, Aragonite
Valle de las Plumas, Paso de Indios, Chubut, Argentina
Small Cabinet, 7.8 x 6.8 x 5.0 cm
These sharp, large aragonite crystals have been pseudomorphed by quartz, included by hematite which gives it its reddish tone. So what you have is quartz in the exact form of the prior aragonite crystals, having preserved their form perfectly. This is a floater, in superb condition. Ex. Richard Hauck Collection.
