ID: CC2077

A fabulous Quartz Gwindel from the Chamonix area of the French Alps. The Quartz group we have to offer shows to advantage the classic Gwindel twist displaying the rotation of the 'stacked' crystals around the shared a-axis. The Quartz crystals are mostly doubly terminated. One single prismatic crystal has grown defiantly at right angles to the main orientation. The Gwindel ranges from a translucent milky white at the base, rapidly changing to water clear gemmy crystals with a smoky tint. A fine Gwindel of Quartz from France.
