Quartz (Var: Smoky Quartz), Schorl, Muscovite
Plumas Co., California, USA
Small Cabinet, 5.1 x 4.5 x 3.0 cm
An old-time combination specimen from Plumas County, which at the Grizzly Mine and other localities has a pretty strong record of producing good smoky quartz specimens. It is the combination here which is so interesting: the smoky quartzes are intergrown with balls of muscovite mica and radiating crystals of schorl tourmaline. Ex. Richard Hauck Collection.
