Mineral Specimen #4308    Distored and Etched Quartz, Epidote, Albite

Capelinha, Jequitinhonha Valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil

The Quartz crystals on this specimen are rather odd with highly etched and distorted surfaces. The largest crystal has a flat termination which is partially covered with micro crystals of Epidote and Albite. Many of the Quartz crystals are double terminated. The Quartz crystals are clear with a slight grayish coloration. The matrix is composed of a mass of mixed micro crystals of white Albite crystals and green Epidote. Many of the small Epidote crystals are gemmy when viewed under 10x. A number of larger Epidote crystals are present. The color ranges from dark green to a pistachio. The largest crystals are long and thin with the longest measuring 28 x 3.5 x 3 mm. The specimen is in very good condition with no appreciable damage.
