4.1" Chlorite Included Quartz Crystal Cluster - Baluchistan, Pakistan

This is a cluster of green quartz crystals that was collected from the Baluchistan Province of Pakistan. The green color of the quartz can be attributed to chlorite inclusions that are concentrated proximal to the terminations of the crystals. Captivating chlorite phantoms can be seen through some of the facets of the crystals.

Comes with an acrylic display stand to assist with preferred presentation.

Silicon Dioxide, also known as SiO2 or Quartz, is the second most abundant mineral in the Earth's crust. Quartz crystals generally grow in silica-rich, hot watery solutions called hydrothermal environments, at temperatures between 100°C and 450°C, and usually under very high pressure. Quartz veins are formed when open fissures are filled with hot water during the closing stages of mountains forming, and can be hundreds of millions of years old.
