Quartz, Tabular, Old Stovall Trail, near Hochatown, McCurtain County, OK, Dr. David London Collection L-264, Minature 0.5 x 4.0 x 5.5 cm, $100. Online Sept. 30.
A single tabular quartz crystal with no point of attachment with a copule of smaller attached tabular crystals on one section. 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)." Specimen has a small chip on one edge, otherwise in great condition. Self-collected by Dr. London in 1996.
