Quartz, Danburite
Cabinet, 9.4 x 8.3 x 6.3 cm
Charcas, Mun. de Charcas, San Luis Potosi, Mexico
A striking and superb pseudomorph of drusy quartz after a huge danburite crystal from the famous mines at Charcas, Mexico. This complete-all-around and pristine pseudomorph is hollow. The smaller, casted pseudomorph on the back is a fine accent. The pseudomorph exhibits textbook, sharp danburite crystal form with the sharp chisel termination. An outstanding, large pseudomorph. Ex. Jaime Bird Collection, who purchased this piece at the 1998 Tucson Show.
