Item details

Handmade

Material

Gem type: Quartz

This is a beautiful fully terminated large Alpine Quartz. Among the geological environments that produce the most beautiful quartz crystals are alpine-type fissures. Alpine-type fissures are cavities that have opened during tectonically caused stretching and bending of the rock. Alpine-type fissures were first exploited, studied and described in the European Alps, so they are often simply called "Alpine fissures". Since then they've been discovered in other mountain chains such as the Himalayan Mountains of Pakistan where this magnificent specimen is from.
This piece measures 170x85x50mm or over 6.5 inches long.
