Quartz with Astrophyllite inclusions
Zagi Mountain, NWFP, Pakistan

This nice quartz crystal from Zagi owes it distinctive orange-brown coloration to a myriad of included hairs of astrophyllite. A thick bundle of them runs top to bottom along one face of the crystal, but there are actually many tiny hairs trapped throughout the quartz crystal. This piece measures 3.2 x 2.7 x 2.2 cm.
