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

  • 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!

  • This cluster of very clear quartz crystals sits perfectly for display. The longest crystal shows a phantom termination inside. There is a little bruising on the piece but, still, it looks great!

  • A mound of drusy quartz crystals that are smoky with perhaps a slight amethystine tinge. The quartz crystals are crowned with groupings of tiny pyrite crystals. As well, there are a couple of partial barite crystals on the specimen. When you look at the bottom, there is sphalerite present in a concentric layer on the bottom. Excellent specimen from a very old locality that has been closed for over 100 years! A great looking specimen from this old locality.
