Twin Tower Quartz with Hedenbergite Inclusions

Weight: 7g

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.
