Schorl, Quartz
Small Cabinet, 8.7 x 1.9 x 1.6 cm
Shigar Valley, Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
This doubly-terminated schorl tourmaline crystal has the distinction of having a gemmy quartz crystal growing right off of one of its terminations - with little needle schorls growing inside of IT! (That makes it a schorl in quartz on schorl!). The schorl has good luster on its striated side faces.
