This is a dramatically sculptural specimen of jade green quartz (prase) with good terminations on elongated, thin, tapering quartz crystals. The dark green color is the result of inclusions of actinolite, and the crystals have a sharp tessin habit with single-point tips. The green color of the quartz from this locality has long been attributed to inclusions of hedenbergite, but recent tests reveal that they are actinolite. There is no damage.
