ID: CC28883
Two thick-set tabular crystals of transparent to colourless Albite Feldspar perch between colourless Quartz crystals of up to 2 cm long and all with a burnt orange brown partial coating.  This specimen is characteristic of those found at Schmirn in the Innsbruck-Land District of Tyrol, Austria, as described on the accompanying old and impressive labels.  The burnt-toffee Quartz crystals contrast well against the almost snow-white carpet of Calcite crystals.
