Quartz Included By Fuchsite
Small Cabinet, 5.8 x 3.6 x 3.2 cm
Iovitra Mine, Itremo, Fianarantsoa Prov., Madagascar
A small cluster of lustrous, translucent to gemmy, colorless quartz crystals extending up to 5.9 cm in length, is situated on a milky quartz matrix. Each crystal exhibits an exquisite fuchsite phantom in the gemmy area just below the termination. The fuchsite is colored a rich mint green. There is damage to a crystal on the non displayed side as well a a tiny wilber on the termination of the main crystal. Neither flaw seriously affects the specimen quality.
