Mine, Huangshi Pref., Hubei Prov., China
5.7x 4.5 cm
nice japan law twin quartz, on matrix, from the Fengjiashan mine. This
mine is particularly notable for its inesites. Amethyst/calcite
combinations, and apophyllites.
The twin is located in the
center of a nest of quartz crystals, and is quite gemmy, for a law
whatever reason, they are always milky white….
As a side note, the mine’s
name is apparently pronounced with an “H”… “Hongjiashan.”
And “Shangbao” (the fluorite
location) is actually “Sangbao”… I still butcher the
pronounciations, but minor corrections make me sound less confused
when talking to people...
