exhibiting Muzo habit
Cedar Ponds, near Sultan, Snohomish County, Washington, USA
Crystal is approximately 1-inch tall
Note: Muzo habit is a rare quartz habit with crystals exhibiting only three prism faces near the termination.
In the above specimen, where the three alternating prism faces pinch out (one of which resembles a phantom),
rhombohedral faces begin to alternate, giving the edges of the three prism faces a jagged, sawtooth appearance. Self-collected in 2008
