Among the numerous inclusions and varieties of quartz, barium and manganese oxide, called hollandite, is one of the most unusual. In fact, these inclusions have the particularity of forming tiny grey to black stars that measure a few millimetres in diameter.
Quartz with inclusions of hollandite was discovered in Madagascar and was named "spider quartz" or "microstar" at the time. This quartz was renamed hollandite in honour of Sir Thomas Henry Holland (1868-1947), a famous geologist and British educational administrator.
The deposit being exhausted this quartz with inclusions has become a more and more hard to find collector's item.
Pretty piece with some impact on one of the crystals

    Désolé pour ce désagrément
    Effectivement la pièce est posée sur un socle avec colle à chaud
    Il est trés facile d'enlever la colle avec de l'alcool à 90 ° et de repositionner le cristal
    Pour les parties effritées je n'y suis pour rien j'espère que cela n'est pas trop grave
    Le papier toilettes en bandelettes pour l'emballage est la meilleure protection ainsi que le papier bulle celà fait ses preuves depuis de nombreuses
    On subit des évaluations neutres par la faute de la poste peut scrupuleuse dans le maniement des colis
    Cordialement
    Eric
