6.5 x 5.4 x 3.0 cm. An aesthetic, old-time quartz crystal cluster from Hot Springs, Arkansas. The two water-clear, vertical, parallel-growth crystals have amazing, lavender to brown, oriented chlorite inclusions. The chlorite inclusions make this a stunning, complete-all-around and nearly pristine specimen. Chlorite-included quartz is rare from Hot Springs and this fine specimen has an around 100-year old A.E. Foote label glued to the bottom of the piece. Ex. Jaime Bird Collection and accompanied by a 1970s-era Roberts Minerals label.
