ID: CC20078
A beautifully aesthetic double terminated bowtie of multi-stepped Quartz crystals, dark green in colour due to acicular inclusions of Actinolite.  From the Sinerechenskoe skarn occurrence on the Blue River in Primorsky Krai, Russia, this specimen carries the somewhat archaic varietal name "Prasem", originating from the German name for quartz coloured leek-green by Actinolite.  A very fine and undamaged example of Russian Prasem, a green variety of Quartz.
