Quartz, Epidote, Hematite, Mica
Hongquizhen Quarry, Sichuan Province, China
10.2 x 9.0 x 4.8 cm.
An old-time 4-mineral combination from my personal collection, from the original finds fifteen years ago at Hongquizheng, in Sichuan, China. It features a large pair of PHANTOM castle formation Quartz crystals hosting several groups of lustrous green Epidote and inclusions of red Hematite balls and yellow Mica. The Quartz is super lustrous, exquisitely detailed, and has included within it tiny SPHERES of red Hematite suspended on the surfaces of the phantom crystals like Christmas tree ornaments! The color combination here is awesome, and the Epidote fans on this particular piece are especially bright and well-formed. In PRISTINE condition, and truly striking in person.
