QUARTZ with CHLORITE on ALBITE
Ganesh Himal (Ganesha),
Dhading District, Bagmati Zone,
Size: 3 1/2" x 2 1/2"
Description: Sharp green chlorite included quartz crystals contrast well against a thin plate light colored albite matrix on this choice specimen. The two minerals are intimately intergrown on this piece. There is still some iron oxide on the albite which could be cleaned further, attesting to its "as collected" state. Will need a stand
for perfect upright display.
