Quartz var. Gwindel

$800.00   €741  £650.00 approx.  

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

ID: CC19776
A beautiful transparent Gwindel Quartz with characteristic double terminations from the Mont Blanc Massif in Chamonix, in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of France.  Gwindels are typically smoky, making this colourless “Rock Crystal” variety much rarer.  The specimen has perfect transparency, with the terminations at one end being lightly dusted with micro-crystals of pale green Chlorite, and to a lesser extent on the convex curved face of the Gwindel.  A lovely and aesthetic French Quartz.
