Faden Quartz & Gwindel – Mt-Blanc, France
Here is a rare association between a faden quartz and a closed gwindel, side to side. Some albite crystals are also visible on the backside. The quartz quality is excellent with a nice luster and great transparency. The gwindel is a scarce closed one, called “sucre” by the French crystal seekers. These “sucres” are probably the rarest form of quartz on earth. Unfortunately, the gwindel has a ding on one side. Otherwise, the whole specimen is absolutely perfect. The remains of hematite baldes are also visible inside the smoky quartz point.
