Now, this quartz holds some of the prettiest actinolithe I have ever seen! When looking closer, you would not be surprised if fish swam through this water-clear quartz, vegetated with tufted green actinolithe. Simply beautiful! The specimen is in superb condition. There is one recrystallized contact at the top, the bottom is flawless. At the back you can see some matrix, where the piece detached from the rock. Luster and clarity of the quartz are brilliant. Appealing and unique!
The quality of this quartz is absolutely fantastic! Perfect clarity and luster, not one single crack and a sharp, flawless tip! The main-crystal as well as some of the side-crystals are right-handed. What is truly remarkable about this piece is not just the outstanding quality, but also the awesome textbook-composition. This specimen might be small, but it is a real stunner of extraordinary aesthetics!
The splendidly etched surface of this specimen allows a glimpse to the water-clear inside of the smoky quartz. Wonderfully appealing on all sides, this piece is a real stunner! The bottom as well is perfectly crystallized. While the major part of the surface is in almost miraculously good condition, there are one or two small chips, but none of which is significant. Without discussion, this piece is simply fabulous!
The longest crystal of this specimen is exactly 2 cm long, which is truly remarkable for the locale. While there is some damage present, this piece still earns its place in any showcase of Alpine minerals. As you can see on the label, this is an old piece, found in 1978.
The shape and color of this amethyst scepter are very special for this locale. The purple scepter-head is sitting off-centred on a colorless body. The quality is good, though admittedly some small edgewear is present. Still, this is a very fine piece as you can nicely see in the picture and the video as well.
