CHALCEDONY on SMOKY QUARTZ on BARITE
MPP:AC CHALCEDONY on SMOKY QUARTZ (Beta quartz) on BARITE
Buck’s Pocket, Cripple Creek, Teller County, Colorado
Collected during filming of PROSPECTORS Season 4
2" L x 5/8" W x 2 3/4" T (cabinet). Smoky quartz of light mixed amethystine and smoky color with coating of slightly sparkly chalcedony in stalactitic formation. These are beta quartz crystals, simple habit. The quartz grew on barite needles which form cores through the smoky quartz. Very interesting specimens and oddly attractive.
