Quartz, Iron Monarch Quarry, Iron Knob, SA
Size- 7cm x 5cm
Lustrous smoky quartz crystals lining a cavity in banded iron formation from the north wall of the pit. The crystals are approx 4mm across, which was typical for this form of quartz. I collected this piece from a waste dump in the late eighties, but it was mined probably in the seventies.
