Helvite (unusually sharp crystals) on Quartz. Ex George Loud (Ref: AX-12-483)

Lechang Mine, Lechang County, Shaoguan Prefecture, Guangdong Province, China
86mm x 72mm x 54mm
minID: FCV-ULV
$1500
An excellent, highly esthetic, sharp and lustrous specimen from the first great find of Helvite in China. The Leichang Mine produced several good to great Helvites in the 2002-3 era; later examples tended to be dull and small in size. This fine example with super sharp crystals to 2.2 CM was sold by Carter Rich in 2003 to George Loud who later sold it back to Carter, it went then to the William Hladysz collection. Old labels and collection cards are included with the piece. Overall in good condition despite the obvious delicate nature of the slender Quartz. Some broken Quartz crystal can be see at some angles and micro chips are on a few edges of the Helvite. Not distracting from display impact this is a very good value for an impressive specimen. Not for an ultra picky perfectionist, and not 5-7K!
