Quartz- two generations

Colorado, United States
5.7 x 4.3 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $90
Worldwide mix summer

Two generations of sharp Quartz crystals make "hedgehog" type clusters on Massive matrix. An old Silverton Colorado p[iece ex Hitchings collection, the catalog lists 1966 as the date he obtained this. Some larger older quartz prisms are completely overgrown with smaller later generation crystals. A few of the original prisms stick out from the mass of small crystals, and show very good transparency. One of the smaller thumbs of Quartz has a break but all the rest is perfect and undamaged. Neat olf piece
