PC8-646Quartz (Var: Sceptre Quartz) : SiO2

Multiple photos available
Torrington, Litchfield Co., Connecticut, USA

scepter tops are about 1/4 inch long.Most scepters from this area have nice simple 5 sided stems with complex secondary growth on top. The orange/red mud around these clusters is of interest in that it seems to have hardened/dried in pocket in a rhombic structure. as of yet is unyielding. measures about 8 inches long dimension.

TX1-JXVQuartz : SiO2

Torrington, Litchfield Co., Connecticut, USA

entire cluster is over 7 inches,long dimension. this area is loaded with quartz crystals. mostly surface to thirty feet down. quartz crystals with chlorite inclusions are quite common in this area. complete intact clusters seem rare because the inclusions seem to weaken the crystals, more common are healed dts. quartz veins seem to run along amphibole vein,NS,and also EW along peg shaped hill.

APJ-NAKActinolite-Tremolite Series

foremost crystal measures 1and1/2 inches in length, nice mang patterns. my first impression was goshenite. but thanks to the great folks at mindat and the best mineral section, I was able to compare pics. thank you mindat. I think this locale could possibly produce some "best" minerals.
