Quartz Included By Fuchsite
Small Cabinet, 8.2 x 6.5 x 5.3 cm
Iovitra Mine, Itremo, Fianarantsoa Prov., Madagascar
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.
