This is a highly sculptural, fine quality specimen of sage green quartz (prase) from Serifos Island. The exquisite, mossy sage green color has been proven to be the result of actinolite inclusions (not hedenbergite as was formerly thought). The actinolite caused growth interference with the developing quartz crystals, resulting in sharp tessin habit crystals that come to termination points with long, gently sloping sides. There is no damage to this fine cluster, which includes 2 large and a bunch of smaller crystals. The locality is played out, and has been closed since 2012.
