ID: CC20791
A showy cluster of translucent milky Quartz crystals from Cavnic mine in Romania, almost entirely masking a plate intermixed lead-grey crystallised Galena and golden-brassy Tetrahedrite.  The Tetrahedrite occurs as rare crystals and a more pervasive granular component of the matrix.  The Quartz crystals are typically 3 to 4 cm tall by 1 to 2 cm in diameter.  Their prism faces are completely encrusted with micro semi-opaque white Quartz crystals with a fine sucrosic frosted texture whereas the hexagonal pyramidal terminations are smooth with a bright glassy lustre.  A choice small cabinet specimen from Cavnic.
