Quartz Included By Fuchsite
Cabinet, 10.1 x 9.0 x 5.3 cm
Iovitra Mine, Itremo, Fianarantsoa Prov., Madagascar
This is an outstanding matrix specimen cluster of lustrous, translucent to gemmy, colorless quartz crystals extending up to 4.5 cm in length. The characteristics that distinguish these quartz crystals are the exquisite fuchsite phantoms in the gemmy areas just beneath the terminations. The color of the fuchsite is an outstanding mint green. One of the lesser crystals is contacted at the termination, however, this is still a superb plate of included quartz.
