The village of Corinto in Minas Gerais, Brazil, is known to be the supplier of magnificent Quartz specimens, and Quartz alone! This large cabinet specimen is Quartz at its best and can certainly be classed as Rock Crystal because of its perfect transparency and being completely colourless. There is no attached matrix as such, with any matrix being formed by the interjoined bases of all the Quartz crystals. These form a divergent group, pointing in all directions and varying in height and thickness. To give examples, the tallest, more central crystal measures about 10 cm and the shorter to its right, 8.5 cm tall and 4 cm wide. The surface texture of both faces and terminations can be either mirror smooth or horizontally rippled with growth structures, both displaying a superb glassy lustre. Crystal morphology is variable which provides added interest to the specimen, with many of the terminations showing the asymmetric Dauphiné habit. A magnificent large cabinet display specimen of colourless gemmy Quartz from Corinto, Brazil.
