- Quartz with Halloysite inclusions
- Cabiche, Quípama Mun., Boyacá Dept., Colombia
- Cabinet, 10.5 x 8.0 x 5.3 cm
Alluring specimen of colorless optical clarity quartz prisms transitioning into bright yellow-orange colored crystals of Halloysite included Quartz. The piece is highlighted by the two more deeply saturated main crystals rising above the sea of terminated paler yellow-orange colored smaller Quartz crystals of equal quality. The display face is in very good condition, with one flat area adjacent to the main crystals that may have had a crystal break due to pocket stress but later recrystallized in the pocket. It is really a cute piece, with moderate color and a lot of sparkle. Crystals reach to just under 4 cm.
