Green Dow Actinolite Included Quartz

This section features a very special type of quartz I found in Tucson this past year. The crystals are long and tapper inwards from the base to the termination. The terminations are all in a dow formation, 7-3-7-3-7-3, a very special formation. The quartz has green actinolite inside which sometimes looks blue in some lights. There are also some little green balls in some of the crystals, and there is poligoskite (spelling?) on the outside of some of the pieces as well. This find comes from Wenshan, Yunnan Province, China, and was found in 2008. The find consisted of about 40 kilos of singles and clusters. A few of the crystals are growing with or hugged by golden calcite crystals. Enjoy these they are beautiful.
