FLOWER QUARTZ WITH INCLUSIONS OF PYROPHYLLITE


INFORMATIONS


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.
