A cluster of quartz crystals sitting on a bladed albite (cleavelandite) base. The quartz is milky at the base but becomes water clear (or nearly so) at the terminations. A small patch of lavender lepidolite mica is seen on the back. Sits perfectly for display on its feldspar foundation. Some quartz termination chipping is present. I collected this specimen from the Oceanview Mine dumps in May of 2003.
