QMAD07 Quartz (Japan Law Twin)
Mahaiza Area, Vakinankaratra Region, Antananarivo Province, Madagascar
11.2x 4.7x 1.6 cm
$300

A very large, rather odd Japan law twinned quartz from Mahaiza.  To begin with, Japan law twins are somewhat rare from this locality-- this one is shaped rather oddly to boot.  It is almost as if it decided to become a twin at the very last second, with a smaller growth at 90 degrees to the main crystal and on the same plane occurring a bit further up from the base than the usual, making for more of a "Y" appearance than the classic "V."  Nor perfect, but again, in interesting reference sample both for the species and the locality.  Not entirely perfect, but exactly as shown.  The only thing thats a bit hard to see from the photographs is that there is an indent on the back where it was inter grown with another crystal that is no longer there.
