Slightly etched quartz - Grieswies, Rauris, Austria


The lightly etched crystal is water-clear and has healed wonderfully at the base. Rarely can crystals of this size (16 cm) be recovered so unharmed. An interesting piece for any quartz collection.

The Rauris is known for its diverse quartz finds. Almost all deposits are in the core zone of the Hohe Tauern National Park. For some years now, collecting minerals has only been possible here with a special permit. Because of this, minerals from the Rauris are rarely offered. The quartz specimen comes from the collection of Josef Kolb, who has been searching for minerals there regularly since the 1970s..
