Quartz var. Amethyst with Dolomite

$500.00   €421  £380.00 approx.  

This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC12552
Amethystine Quartz crystals of between 4 and 5 cm tall, preferentially coated in thick drusy cream Dolomite from Banská Štiavnica in Slovakia.   The Quartz crystals are translucent with a glassy lustre and have asymmetric terminations.  The Dolomite forms a 5 mm thick layer which coats the Quartz from one direction, indicating the ‘way-up’ of the specimen during this secondary phase of mineral deposition.  To complete the aesthetic, the drusy Dolomite has a preferential blush of delicate rose-pink.
