Quartz Var. Babel Quartz

ID: CC17768
A milky to off-white, semi-lustrous specimen of vein Quartz, over which masses of stubby hexagonal Quartz crystals are developed to about 3 to 4 mm across.  Of special significance, however, are a number of epimorphs of Quartz replacing cubic Fluorite crystals (box epimorphs). Even more unusual are the many beautiful examples of the rare epimorph termed ‘Babel’ Quartz in which the Quartz forms stepped hexagonal towers.  This is an excellent example from the Tamar Valley mines around Bere Alston in the Tavistock District of Devon, England.
