ID: CC8468
A beautiful double-terminated, heart-shaped Japan Law twin of Quartz from the Brandberg Area of Namibia.  This is a great twinned tabular crystal with a fine transparency and lustre.  It is an excellent example of Japan Law twinning because the re-entrant angle between the twinned crystals can clearly be seen to be a little under 90°, with the calculated angle being 84° 33'.  The crystals are highly flattened with broad hexagonal pyramidal terminations.  A fabulous Japan Law Quartz from the 25 km diameter granite pluton at Brandberg in Namibia.
