Quartz, GwindelQuartz, Gwindel

Item number: 20098

Sometimes, quartz forms in these unusual, twisted crystals, especially, it seems, in Switzerland! Some light chloritic frosting on some of the faces on this crystal. Here is a classic "gwindel" from that region. An old catalogue label dating it from an exchange with a museum in 1947 accompanies the gwindel.
