Quartz, Actinolite
Capelinha, Jequitinhonha valley, Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil
Cabinet, 12.9 x 3.3 x 2.6 cm
This crystal has been polished on its faces; the better to give a window on what is really interesting about it: it is incredibly richly shot through with mossy green acicular crystals of actinolite which under a good light reflect and glitter in every direction.
