02327: Quartz
Elizabeth R Mine, Pala District, San Diego County, California
Cabinet - 12.5 x 5.3 x 4.7 cm (4.9 x 2.1 x 1.9 inches)
Weight - 482 grams
Specimen status: Sold

A mostly transparent, colorless (or perhaps very lightly smoky) quartz crystal that I collected from the Elizabeth R Mine dumps on November 9, 2003. Very slightly frosted faces partially obscure the crystal's clarity from the camera (the clarity is more apparent to the camera when backlit; third photo). The termination is slightly flat and naturally pitted, but complete. Minor tourmaline inclusions. Needs a stand to sit as shown in the last photo.
