These crystals of green quartz, with their gently tapering form and inclusions of acicular (hair-like) crystals of hedenbergite, are classic from the Greek island of Seriphos. Most often, you see matrix-free clusters of a few crystals. Here, you have dozens of crystals, on matrix. Ex. Richard Hauck Collection.
