Quartz Included By Fuchsite
Iovitra Mine, Itremo, Fianarantsoa Prov., Madagascar
Small Cabinet, 8.2 x 6.5 x 5.3 cm
Several lustrous, partially gemmy, colorless quartz crystals reaching 4.2 cm in length are included by fuchsite phantoms in the areas just below the terminations. The fuchsite inclusions are colored a lovely mint green. The terminations of a few crystals have been cleaved, however, the aesthetics of the specimen are still present.
