036 Prasem, Hematite
Serifos Island, Kyklades, Greece
This is a highly aesthetic and superb quality specimen of sage green quartz (Prasem) from Mega Horio, Serifos Island. The mossy green crystals are perched on a matrix that includes Hematite as well. The green color results from Hedenbergite inclusions. With backlight the crystals show their translucent character (2. photo). The surface is highly shining. Unfortunately there is one small chip on the top. The largest crystal have a stunning 12.5 cm in length. A wonderful piece all in all.
Size: 12.5 x 4.5 x 3.7 cm
