Granite pegmatites.
Miarolitic pegmatite veins in granite of the Strzegom-Sobótka massif.

Strzegom is a center of a large granite quarrying industry and, unfortunately, many specimens are only generically labeled. Quarry names should be used on labels as well as the specific town, but most specimens have not been properly labeled, historically.
