Quartz included by Actinolite (Tessin)
Wenshan County, Wenshan Autonomous Prefecture
Yunnan, China
10.3 x 2.1 x 1.4CM (cabinet)
price: $460
Spring 2014

From a small find made 2002 this is one of the best single crystals recovered. Undamaged, sizable at over 10CM long, with excellent luster and translucence. The upper half of this shows a distinct Tessin habit but the lower half does not. Similar to some of the recent Himalayan quartz and the classic Greek included quartz, this has a noticably different look and texture.
