Description

This specimen comes from an alpine find at the Hohe Tauern in Carinthia. Water-clear quartz crystals on a small matrix, which is dark green due to chlorite on one side and bright due to mica on the other side. The crystals are covered with bright mica in the lower part and have clear, highly lustrous terminations. The mica covering gives the crystals a frosty character. The crystals reduce towards the top – this is a typical for this locality. Well crystalized as aesthetic floater piece. No significant damage to report.
