Quartz
 

JFD173AP0: This very fine Quartz from the mythical La Gitana mine has a curious history, because it came to my collection very recently. I did not have any pieces of it but with the sale of part of the collection of Santiago Jiménez I became very happy with this one although, as sometimes happens, another better one had been forgotten, and several months after the 'coming out' of that collection I was able to acquire another Quartz from the same mine, and so in the end I am letting this one go.
