Quartz
Replacement Ore Body, Camp Bird Mine, near Ouray, Ouray County, Colorado
51 x 50 x 48mm

Here we have an elegant “floater” Quartz group featuring several sharp, lustrous, prismatic, translucent, doubly-terminated crystals flaring in all directions. I looked at the piece closely, and could not find a point of attachment anywhere on the bottom, but there are several individual Quartzes that obviously were loose when the piece was in crystallization, and then came together in a muddled group underneath. An aesthetic large miniature display piece, and a great overall specimen for a simple Colorado Quartz. The famous Camp Bird Mine, which started operating in 1896, produced over 5 million Troy ounces of Gold and Silver combined in nearly a century. This locality not only produced native metals, with literally thousands of beautiful crystallized display specimens, including some of the best sulfides from Colorado, but it also produced some wonderful non-metallic specimens.
