Calcite and Quartz on Matrix
DI 3-4, April 2003
Zederhaus, Lungau, Salzburg, Austria
Inter-grown calcite crystals in an aesthetic combination with small quartz crystals. The calcites are very transparent and partly colored green by chlorite. The faces show a silky sheen and are partly grown in several layers. Small quartz crystals grow partly on the green schist matrix and partly directly out of the calcite, which gives the piece its special character.
