Mineral Specimen #5850 Quartz and Epidote
Centennial Mine, Centennial, Houghton Co., Michigan
10.3 x 7.7 x 5.5 cm
Ex. Paul Eglsaer
Small, off white colored Quartz crystals with Epidote. For the most part, the Epidote appears dark gray in color. Close examination reveals there are small Epidote crystals which are covered on one side with very small Quartz crystals. When viewed under 10x, from the side not covered with Quartz, the Epidote crystals can be seen to be gemmy and a bright green color. Overall, the specimen has a very sparkly appearance.
Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
