I got a real kick out of this specimen when I zeroed in on the Hematite rose and saw the little japanese-law twinned Quartz crystal. It's a perfect little twin 2mm across and waterclear. There is another which is equally nice as shown on the 6th photo. The Hematite rose is nice also and the largest is 6mm across. The twinned Quartz must be a later generation as the rest of the Quartz seems green and is prismatic. There are also some excellent sprays of Epidote. I have convinced myself that the long white prismatic crystals are stacked rhombohedra of Adularia and not apatite.

You will surely enjoy this peice under the scope.
