Excellent but very hard to photograph specimen of quartz from the alpine type fissures of Chania, Crete! The piece features a main large crystal with excellent luster and transparency. The prism faces of the crystal are very short as is typical for quartz crystals from this locality. The main crystal is undamaged and even the back and base are recrystallized. A fine quartz specimen from Crete. You can watch a draft video of the specimen as the photo cannot show how the piece really looks like. Click here to watch the video.
