Dolomite with Quartz
Traversella, Chiusella Valley, Canavese DistrictMetropolitan city of Tur
5.3 x 3.5 x 2.4 CM (cabinet)
A cute and unusual Dolomite that is in translucent blocky rhombs nestled with clear Quartz crystals. A vintage specimen with old labels ex Pallanza collection. Very good luster and condition, Dolomites from this area of the Piedmont are known in many habits and styles, this one look much more like a French Alpine specimen but is really from the Piedmont.
