Mineral Specimen #1193 Epidote included in Quartz
Fazenda Rubin Pimenta Mine, Capelinha, Jequitinhonha valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
9.8 x 4.5 x 3.4 cm
The Quartz on this specimen has an unusual habit composed of many faces which are often triangular and have a rounded aspect as if melted. There are numerous holes in the crystal which for the most part have triangular shapes. The Quartz is clear which allows one to see the long, thin Epidote crystals criss crossing through the specimen. The longest Epidote crystal is 3.5 cm long. None of the Epidote crystals appear to be terminated. The Quartz is excellent condition with no damage. This would be a most unusual Quartz crystal even without the Epidote.
