Quartz, Adularia
St Gotthard pass area, Central St Gotthard Massif, Leventina, Ticino (Tessin), Switzerland
Large Cabinet, 17.9 x 11.9 x 6.4 cm
A spectacular combination of two Swiss Alpine classics, in a large size. One half of this plate is dominated by glassy quartz crystals which in their clarity immediately say "Swiss." The other half is covered with sharp, frosty crystals of adularia (to 1.3 cm). Ex. Dave Michaels Collection, who does sports promos for NFL games.
