Siderite on Quartz
Availability: 1 in stock
I tend to fall for classic or unusual Mexican specimens and this one had that eye appeal for me. Two smoky quartz intersect each other and one appears to have growth interferance as the face is complete yet the growth was stunted. The entire back of the piece is completely coated with siderites and the front has an ever so slight dusting of siderite adding a sparkle.
Locality: Mina San Antonio, Santa Eulalia District, Chihuahua Mexico
