Description

Very curious shape for this quartz crystal we can call a fenster quartz,from a little area in south of Alpes, near Sisteron.
This kind of quartz crystal seems broken by tectonic, and rehealed in good conditions,but with hazardous faces.
Found nearly free, in little clefts on bad  calcite. Only one specimen in one cleft, often broken ! Unusual shape, curious growths and deformations, but extraordinary luster.
No damages.
