DI 2-30, March 2003
Zederhaus, Lungau, Salzburg, Austria
This piece consists of a 7 cm thick green schist matrix which is partially covered with shiny light brown calcites. Three generations of quartz crystals have grown between the calcites. The smallest generation is only about 1 mm in size and grew on the matrix, the calcites, and the larger quartz crystals. Another generation measures about two centimeters and has grown between the calcites and on the matrix. Individual quartz main crystals have grown on the specimen. Most of them are double terminated.
