Twin Phantom Discovery Quartz from Chongwe, Zambia


This twin Phantom Discovery Quartz has a stunning chlorite inclusion phantom in each of the two crystals. The phantom crystal is very clear in the larger cystal, and more subtle in the smaller twin crystal.

There is a third tiny crystal growth, though it was interupted and so does not have a clear termination.

Weight: 24.6 g

Dimensions: 4.3cm x 3.3cm x 1.7cm

In 2019 we visited a mine near Chongwe Zambia and we were able to get some kilos of samples with very special phantoms. 

In March 2020, as the world melted, we got a message while at the airport in Johannes. The news was bad. Zambia would require is to quarantine for 14 days.

We had bold ambitions for our trip but this leg was quickly scuttled.

We had plans to visit this mine but we failed. However our team was able to send us a parcel of these unusually included quartz.

We stayed in touch with the community miners who sent us a large parcel in October 2020. 

We are located in Toronto's west end at 124 Portland St, Etobicoke.

You may visit the warehouse by appointment only during our hours of 10am-6pm Monday to Friday.
