Quartz, DolomiteQUARTZ, Various Localities, Canada
  • Item #18730
  • Quartz, Dolomite
  • 7.8x5.8x4.3 cm
  • Largest Crystal Size: 36mm

  • Duparquet

  • Quebec, Canada
  • A beautiful cluster of quartz crystals, partially shrouded with a covering of small carbonate crystals. The carbonate crystals, I expect ferroan dolomite, cover only one side of the quartz crystals. The quartz crystals are very clear, gemmy and colourless, much like alpine cleft quartz. I expect this is from the old Beattie gold mine or related workings at Duparquet. Superb!
