I collected this milky quartz specimen with Dick Holmes in 1998 in Haddam, CT, from a pit we excavated. We followed the intersection of two veins of milky quartz that intersected, creating a spot where crystals could grow to size. Almost all the crystals were loose singles.  The color is lightly milky, and it is translucent with a clear area at the tip. Some of the faces are completely clear, while others are very lightly frosted. A true Connecticut classic, as the site is now exhausted.
