Captivating single 'pocket' of "Mango Quartz" wrapped around and within a microcrystalline quartz covered matrix for display. The pocket's centerpiece is the 8.2 cm magnificently hoppered/multi-terminated yellow-orange fibrous Halloysite included Quartz. As dominant as that crystal is, the 2 crystals jutting out to the left steal the show with their darker yellow-orange to amber-colored, crazy cigar-like terminations. I haven't seen any other pieces from the locale with this degree of termination style before a small group of specimens that came out in January of 2023, from which this came. Truly fascinating. Without a doubt an unique oddity from the locale, and unique in the world as well. Popular now, such finds tend to last a few years, vary from pocket to pocket, and then go away forever. We tried to select as many of the more interesting pieces as we could, and this one has the added bonus of being sturdy and easy to ship.
