10.4 x 6.4 x 3.4 cm. You do not see much material from the Pack Rat Mine (the California one, that is) around on the market. This piece came out of the Houser collection. It is a plate of modified prismatic and tabular quartz crystals, with a sprinkle of red spessartine garnets, on a matrix of albite.
