Quartz with Pyrite
Dalnegorsk, Kavalerovo Mining District
Primorsky Kray, Far Eastern Region, Russia
9.3 x 6.8 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $750
Late Summer 2018

A very esthetic specimen ex Charles Noll collection. This is a bit of a mystery, The labels attribute this to Dalngorsk and the dusting of Pyrite looks just like some tiny pyrite found there on white Calcite, but this is on Milky Quartz in doubly terminated prisms. I can not find any other examples with this look, so we have tried to confirm the locality. I have been told this was probably from one of the very first waves of specimens to come from Russia which had many oddities not seen again. This fits with the collection vintage, and would make this a very special addition to any fine Dalngorsk suite. The quartz are doubly terminated, perfect all around and are epitaxially coated with tiny Pyrite crystals. An attractive arrangement and striking specimen unlike anything we have seen from any locale worldwide.
