Quartz with Calcite
DI 2-18, March 2003
Zederhaus, Lungau, Salzburg, Austria
A double terminated quartz crystal grown on a cluster of calcites. The quartz crystal narrows towards one end. There are three chlorite-green colored surfaces that are partially covered with a second generation of quartz crystals and chlorite. The other three surfaces reveal a snowy layer and are partially covered with a second generation of quartz crystals. This layer reaches to the edges of the prisms where it abruptly ends. The tops are highly lustrous and transparent. Very attractive and undamaged!
