Mineral Specimen #5471    Quartz, Albite variety: Pericline, Muscovite, minor Hematite and Chlorite

Tyrol, Austria

A single Quartz crystal which is fairly transparent. The crystal would be more transparent but there are interesting structures in the interior which run the length of the crystal. These appear to be caused by the former presence of thin Muscovite crystals which apparently left cast like impressions in the Quartz. It appears these have been filled with Quartz but may still be partially empty - it is hard to tell within the Quartz. Some of these casts also appear on the surface and have been coated with a thin layer of micro Hematite crystals. Attached to one side of the specimens is a mix of Albite crystals of the Priceline habit and Muscovite crystals. There are more Muscovite crystals near the base of the specimen. In places, the Muscovite is present as rosettes. There are micro Chlorite crystals scattered sparsely over the surfaces of the Quartz.

Condition: Good

Flaws:

7.6 x 4.8 x 5.7 cm
