Quartz from La Belleza, Vélez, Santander Department, Colombia. (Nº-29).

Transparent Quartz crystal with regular hexagon cross section and a great white phantom showing the pyramidal internal faces. With more little crystals downstairs. It is flawless all around.

This comes from La Belleza (The Beauty) also a new Colombian locality in my collection.
Now I know that some of the specimens i have labeled only from Santander Department come from this little municipio at the south of Santander, nearby the municipio Bolívar and the municipio Florián where there are quartz areas.

Thank you very much Pierre.

Glad that you like.

I was able to obtain four specimens from the same find with the white phantoms. The dealer had eight units and didn´t want to sell me any more, but i was lucky to purchase these crystals.

Kind regards.
