Quartz

DI 2-2, March 2003

Location:

Zederhaus, Lungau, Salzburg, Austria

Description:

This is the heaviest crystal from this find. It weighs over 4 kg and measures 24 cm in height. This cluster showed up in the rubble after making a fresh opening in the cleft (photo report). Since this specimen was broken off from a larger cluster through the collapse of the cleft, small parts are missing. DI 2-3 originated from this same original cluster. The quartz crystal shows razor-sharp edges, the side surfaces show a snowy layer, inter-grown with the top layer. This layer reaches to the edges of the prisms ending there as if cut off. Some of the surfaces are covered with a second generation of quartz and chlorite. The tops are highly lustrous with some snowflake-like white spots, some of which reveal inner phantoms.
