Vivid green, small Epidote crystals have grown on a thin plate which was later intersected by clear to white Quartz crystals. The color of the Epidote is much nicer than usually seen from the location. The Epidote crystals are quite nice having a high glassy and sparkly luster. Most of the Epidote crystals are thin and elongated. The smaller Epidote crystals are transparent and gemmy. In several places, the Epidote crystals are included in the Quartz crystals. There are a number of maroon colored Axinite crystals also present which are well formed, semi transparent and have a high, glassy luster. In one area, there is also massive, white colored, translucent Calcite below the Epidote layer. This Calcite has several Axinite crystals included in it.

Condition: Very Good

Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
