Description

A sweet small miniature featuring a chisel head epidote crystals elegantly connected to a milky quartz crystal, both departing from a common matrix centre. Epidote is lustrous and well-developed, and so is quartz.

Perfectly balanced specimen, from the best epidote locality in Greece. Also, unquestionally one of my best from there.

From a famous, limited find that took place at the end of 2019. Very scarce material!
