Quartz from Segovia, Northeast, Antioquia Department, Colombia. (Nº-44).

Good size doubly terminated translucent Quartz crystal with many termination points at both ends.
Also in a side there are growing of caramel color smaller ones.

The quartzs i have from Segovia are usually without notches, but the size and the well conservated edges from this locality, where gold is the King, make this piece a special example.

To know more you have a thread in the spanish side showing a trip to Segovia looking for a “entable” or gold ore transformation colombian factory.
