Twin Tower Quartz with Hedenbergite Inclusions
Dimension: 3.5cm x 1.9cm x 1.5cm
Locality: Huanggang Fe-Sn deposit, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhad League, Inner Mongolia, China
A cute little pair of dipyramidal terminated quartz scepters with very well balanced parallel growth of crystals showcasing cumberland habit. The deep olive-green color is due to hedenbergite inclusions, a classic Mongolian quartz sample. The prismatic faces appear to have secondary, micro quartz which gives the crystals a “sugar coating” appearance.
