Dalnegorsk, Kavalerovo Mining District
Primorsky Kray, Far Eastern Region,
3 x 1.8 x 1.5 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
Pre Holiday 2017
Thumbnail of Cumberland (often called Beta Quartz) habit that is esthetically perched on a scepter stalk. The shaft is covered with Chlorite and tiny Quartzes also. The cap is in fine condition, showing complex growth patterns on some faces. The shaft is broken only at the base where it was removed and not visible in mounted display. A super quality competitive thumbnail that looks fine from any angle.
