Here's a very choice, gem-clear TIBETAN QUARTZ crystal cluster which was mined in the Himalayan Mountains of Tibet. Crystals from this locality are reportedly carried out in a sack on the back of a yak. The long, slender crystals are all water clear and some are double terminated and see-through gem at the terminations, grading to slightly foggy in the middles, due to rainbows, black anthraxolite and microscopic white bubble inclusions. The anthraxolite is a low grade coal, fosilized remains of ancient sea sponges. The crystals in this piece are 100% natural, just as they emerged from the earth. I purchased this fine specimen at the Tucson Gem Rock and Mineral Show from one of the wholesale dealers who set up at one of the hotel shows on the I-10.
