Description

Here is a museum-size Quartz from Sør-Varanger
It is weight is 7,7 kg, and it measures 15,5 x 25,5 x 20 cm

The color is white, partly transparent. Also appear some yellow/red (but not Citrine).
It got beautiful quartz crystals all over, and mostly they are undamaged, with great sharp tops.
You will however see very few crystals that are cut off, and also some minor damage in the bottom left corner (where there are only smaller crystals). But in general in great shape for being a specimen of this size. 

A beautiful museum-size specimen from this area, that you probably will not find for sale anywhere else.

I remember when me and my father drove to Kirkenes (Sør-Varanger) in July of 1992 to visit one of his mineral friends. On this trip we also went to search for Quartz. While my father and his friend was digging at the most obvious place, I was digging some meters away, and came across a great pocket, where we pulled up a lot of nice specimens from this pocket. It is highly likely that this specimen is from this pocket, but I cannot guarantee that it is from this exact pocket/year.

In my father's collection he has labeled the location as "Midtfjordvannet". I don't find this exact location on the map, but I find a location called "Midtfjordvatnan" which is basically the same.
