Willemite and Quartz

ID: CC1638

A pretty thumbnail featuring a prismatic Quartz crystal surrounded by very lustrous crystals of Willemite. The Willemite crystals are transparent yellowish to dark red-brown colour and measure to 3mm, showing excellent hexagonal crystal form. There are several green areas in the Willemite labelled as possible Thometzekite. The rear on the specimen is preferentially coated with tiny rhombs of Calcite. Very aesthetic.
