Quartz from San Cristobal, Santander, Colombia.

Fragile spiny clear quartz with long skinny needle crystals forming 3D sculptures. This spiky piece presents colorless crystals to over 5 cm some of them totally lying and doubly terminated.

It is nice to see the birth of some crystals from the matrix.

I truly love the delicacy of the thin pointy crystals of this specimen.

Hi Firmo
This is an awesome specimen!
San Cristobal quartz is usually available as single crystals rather than large clusters.
Probably one of the reasons why this locality is still underrated.
One dealer had some large quartz clusters from San Cristobal at the last Munich show - very uncommon.

Gérard thank you for your words.

Very interesting for me to know quartzs of San Cristobal have been seen in Munich this year.

I think that in the collectioin there are three clusters, more or less large, from this locality. The remaining ones are smaller or single crystals.

Now in 2017 I usually find in Medellín more specimens from Peña Blanca Mine, Boyacá Department. I´ll share all these new acquisitions that I have rescued in this city. And I´m very glad this new seller is more precise than others.
