Huanggang Mine, Hexigten Banner (Keshiketeng Co.), Ulanhad League (Chifeng Prefecture), Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China
A nice sample of beta quartz from Haunggang, on a rock matrix. I have seen hundreds of similar clusters off matrix, or clustered with other quartz crystals, but I can't recall seeing other isolated scepters like this on a rock matrix. Looking at it, I can see how easily a miner might just yank off the quartz... Interesting piece.
