Small Cabinet, 8.2 x 4.6 x 2.8 cm
A stunning, water-clear, sharply terminated quartz "obelisk" is beautifully accented with an interesting protruding wreath of sparkly, brass-yellow pyrite microcrystals over sphalerite from the Panasqueira Mine of Portugal. The quartz is complete-all-around, nearly pristine. Classic and superlative combination material from this famed locale.
