Quartz (Var: Smoky Quartz), Microcline
Small Cabinet, 7.4 x 7.3 x 5.8 cm
Papachacra, Belen Department, Catamarca, Argentina
A fine, mounded, combination specimen from recent finds in Argentina. Glassy, nearly transparent smoky quartz crystals are very attractively scattered amongst cream-colored microcline crystals. The interesting, perched smoky quartz atop the mound is 2.3 cm. Highly representative of the species and locale.
