Quartz Included By Fuchsite
Iovitra Mine, Itremo, Fianarantsoa Prov., Madagascar
Small Cabinet, 8.6 x 5.8 x 4.7 cm
Rising above its matrix and resembling a rocket ship, a well-formed, lustrous, translucent to gemmy, mostly colorless quartz crystal measures 7.9 cm in length. It exhibits an exquisite fuchsite phantom in the gemmy area just beneath the termination. The fuchsite inclusion is colored a rich mint green. Definitely one of the nicest specimens in this lot!
