Rare Fine Quality Pineapple Quartz Points - 100×70×70 mm - 380 g
Madagascar

Beautiful specimen of Pineapple Quartz consisting of different quartz points featuring a ‘wrinkled’ surface and smooth and polished tips.
These quartz in jargon are called ‘encrusted’ by a second generation of smaller crystals that have grown on the faces of the prism. The small second-generation crystals point away from the prism and their direction is not related to the crystallographic orientation of the central crystal. Often the tips of the first generation crystals remain free.
A very special mineral. Thanks to its small size cen be easily displayed in any corner of your home or in a fine Wunderkammer.

Dimensions: 100 × 70 × 70 mm.
Weight: 380 g.
Origin: Madagascar.
