Quartz, Tabular, Stovall Trail, McCurtain County, Oklahoma, Dr. David London Collection L-256, Miniature 3.5 x 5.0 x 6.0 cm, $375. Online Sept. 30.
Sharp group of quartz crystals with no point of attachment showing both classic prismatic and tabular crystallography. A rare specimen from alpine-type quartz veins in southeast Oklahoma. In the words of Dr. London "The quartz veins in SE OK are alpine-type, which is why the quartz has so many habits: very low temperature, lower than veins near Hot Springs (AR)." A very aesthetic specimen in great condition with just one minuscule nick. Self-collected by Dr. London in October 2001.
