Super-gemmy and lustrous, slender crystals of quartz cover both sides of this plate from Arkansas. In fact, this is really just a mass of intergrown crystals! The lustre is incredible. The quarry is huge but has been flooded for well over 30 years and is currently not open to collecting....even if you could the site of these specimens is under over 30 foot of water. 10.1 x 7.0 x 2.5cm
