Schorl, Quartz
Santa Cruz, Mun. de Santa Cruz, Sonora, Mexico
Cabinet, 10.4 x 6.5 x 5.8 cm
Mexican schorl specimens of this sharpness and combination quality are rare. A sharp, 7.0 cm, quartz-frosted, smoky quartz crystal is strikingly set amidst clusters of radiating, lustrous, jet-black schorl crystals. Part of the schorl crystals are also coated by the drusy quartz, adding to the effect of this dramatic cabinet specimen. This very fine specimen is from an uncommon Mexican locale - Santa Cruz in Sonora. Ex. Consie Prince Collection.
