Quartz Var Capped Quartz

ID: CC1125

The Virtuous Lady Mine is well know amongst British mineral collectors as a location for specimens of "Capped Quartz" The specimen we have although repaired displays the capped habit well. The caps have formed as a result of a thin zone of Clay between the under lying quartz crystal and the cap of Quartz. A great specimen from this probable Elizabethan mine
