A stately quartz specimen out of the Richard Hauck Collection, combining a whole range of classic Panasqueira minerals. Two tall quartz crystals, with chlorite in back, rise above a field of smaller crystals, decorated with translucent green fluorapatites, along with muscovite and siderite. To top it off, there are also crystals of ferberite and arsenopyrite to be seen. Old classic material from the 1960-s-1980s.
