Collector's Piece: Rare Optic-clear Quartz from Yaogangxian Mine

Dimension: 8cm x 2cm x 3.5cm

Weight: 35g

Locality: Yaogangxian Mine, Yaogangxian W-Sn ore field, Yizhang Co., Chenzhou, Hunan, China


A truly rare beauty from the Yaogangxian Mine!  Optical clear Quartz Points are rare everywhere on earth and this reminds me of the Colombian optic clear quartz but with more complexity and aesthetics.  In a slightly elongated tabular crystal habit, it has exceedingly high luster.  Micro-crystals of Wolframite var. Ferberite sparsely scattered on the piece, this is for sure a winning display piece!
