Thank you Sante. I thought so too as I had never seen similar specimens before from Turt. Definitely a nice addition to the Romanian suite.

Quartz
Locality: Toufassmame (Izizauen), Alnif, Tinghir Province, Drâa-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
Dimensions: 5.6 x 7.7 cm
Description: Colorless quartz crystals with a second generation overgrowth of iron oxide tinted red quartz.
It's been 5 and a half years that Michael posted his avatar specimen as a large photo and while we discussed my new Alnif quartz I realized that I never commented on this one here. Lovely sculptural specimen, absolutely beautiful!

Btw, the green fluorite from Madagascar posted some weeks ago is also great, perfect specimen from that quite new find!

Tobi, thanks for your comment on the Madagascar fluorite and Moroccan quartz. It's really hard to believe it has been that long since posting that red quartz. I remember acquiring at the Tucson Show soon after they hit the market. I can still picture the piece sitting on a shelf as I entered the dealer's room. I was immediately drawn to that specimen and knew that I had to have it.

Thanks also to James for posting the direct link to the quartz.

Michael
