Quartz - Mt Tabor style tabular, gemmy
stock #19.1-368
Devils Den, Mount Tabor, Rutland County
Vermont, United States
2.3 x 1.3 x .7 (thumbnail)
price: $110


Small, perfect, gem clear, brilliantly lustrous tabular habit Quartz. From the recently described (May-June 2019 Rocks and Minerals magazine) Devils Den locality. These alpine style Quartz are not often available and are not well known outside the Northeastern USA. An excellent thumbnail example from this location and an attractive Quartz from anyplace. In fine condition as seen.
Quartz -"Mt Tabor type"
stock #19.1-366
Devils Den, Mount Tabor, Rutland County
Vermont, United States
3.2 x 2.2 x .6 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $130


Gem clear, doubly terminated Quartz from Devils Den that has a slight faden line, and several terminations in a line that share the same tabular prism faces. Some of this sort have been called "Mt Tabor Twins" though these are likely not a unique twin law but are quite distinctive and very unusual. The June 2019 Rocks and Minerals article describes the locality well and these alpine style USA Quartz are not often available on the market.
Quartz- faden, USA locality
stock #19.1-365
Devils Den, Mount Tabor, Rutland County
Vermont, United States
3.8 x 3 x 1.1 CM (miniature)
price: $85


The faden Quartz from the long known locality of Devils Den, Mt Tabor, Vermont is rarely seen. This site was recently described in the June, 2019 issue of Rocks and Minerals, and illustrates several unusual habits of Alpine style Quartz not often seen in the USA. This tabular transparent Quartz crystal shows a very distinct faden string as well as offset growth structures and recrystallized breaks. Some chipping exists at one end but the rest is undamaged. A nice gemmy transparent Faden from the USA not often available.
