Quartz

ID: CC20523
This quite extraordinary ice-clear Quartz crystal is from Teufelsmühle, a majestic mountain in the Habach valley near to Salzburg in Austria, whose summit reaches 2573 m.  This single hexagonal crystal has a little attached and included blackish matrix at its base and although not terminated, it does have a naturally crystallised/etched termination.  The prism faces form deeply incised crystalline ribs, a habit which could be classified as a type of Cactus Quartz, but with broad horizontal crystal terminations as opposed to the typical pointed form.  The crystal has excellent clarity and is a superb specimen for the collector of Quartz, Alpine minerals or just the unusual!
