Quartz with Fuchsite Phantoms
Anovitra, Ambatofinandrahana
Fianarantsoa Province, Madagascar
8.8 x 6.3 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $750
Spring update

Sharp and perfect clear terminations of Quartz crystals presenting distinct well-defined green phantoms. While Fushsite phantoms from this location have been found before, only one pocket had clear terminations and very bright phantoms near the tips that are so clearly seen. Outstanding in person, this is from that one find and is far above average quality. Nothing like it has been found since. Displays great from several angles, there are 5 crystals with green phantoms in the cluster and 3 without any. We have seen a few of these mislabeled as Papagoite and Ajoite inclusions, often at very high prices. This is however classic Fuchsite or chrome mica in the Quartz but a rare and attractive form.
