FLOWER QUARTZ WITH INCLUSIONS
Pyrophyllite quartz also called Flower Quartz appeared on the gem market
in Tucson Gem Show of 2012. The flowers of pyrophillite aggregates are
rarely fully included in the quartz crystals. They usually lie above the
faces of the quartz. If the stone is cutted using the crystal quartz face
at the base, it is possible to see the base of the pyrofillite aggregate
through the quartz that is very clean.
As most of the quartz with inclusions from Brazil, this variety is
found in the area between Corinto and Diamantina.
