Quartz included by Hollandite stars
Ambatofinandrahana Department, Amoroni Mania Region
10 x 5.6 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
A pair of closely joined Quartz prisms showing star inclusions of Hollandite. The main crystals growing from a cluster of smaller Quartz and are clear enough to clearly see the radiating bursts of dark Hollandite crystals. From finds over 15 years ago, these are not being found anymore as far as we know. The Quartz is also in very good condition, most of the other specimens in the find had significant chipping. A nice addition to a Quartz suite or any collection of inclusions.
