Quartz, Albite (Var: Pericline), Calcite, Rutile
Erfurt way, Grieswies-Schafkar, Grieswies - Krumlkeeskopf Mt. area, Huttwinkl valley, Rauris valley, Hohe Tauern Mts, Salzburg, Austria
Cabinet, 12.0 x 11.9 x 6.4 cm
An uncommon, fine, cabinet combination specimen from the less well-known Erfurt Way locality in Austria. Quartz and pericline (an albite varietal) are rare from here, but here we have a very glassy complex of quartz crystals nicely accented with a couple of clusters of bone-white pericline crystals, scattered snow-white calcite rhombs and lustrous, wine-red rutile needles included in the quartz crystals.
