Quartz, Albite, Spessartine
Cabinet, 10.4 x 6.4 x 3.4 cm
Pack Rat Mine, Mt. Tule, Jacumba District, San Diego Co., California, USA
You do not see much material from the Pack Rat Mine (the California one, that is) around on the market. This piece came out of the Houser collection. It is a plate of modified prismatic and tabular quartz crystals, with a sprinkle of red spessartine garnets, on a matrix of albite.
