Detailed information on mineral specimen No. 71346:

Minerals Species: Quartz on Calcite.
Location of mineral deposit: Hudson Railroad Cut Calcite Locality, Anthony's Nose, Cortlandt, Westchester County, New York.
Description: Thin plate (part of a fracture-filling vein) of lustrous transparent brown quartz crystals to 1.5 mm on translucent white calcite. It is unusual that the quartz crystals appear to be colored by limonite, but the calcite shows no sign of limonite. The crystals grew in a constricted cavity preventing complete crystal development. Most visible crystals are complete and undamaged. From my private collection; collected July 1997. See my article: Anthony's Nose, New York -- Three Mineral Localities.
Overall size of mineral specimen: 13x7x1.5 cm.
Size of individual crystals: 0.2-1.5 mm
Price: $40 (plus shipping).
