Epidote with Quartz
Green Monster Mountain, USA
Green Monster Mountain, Prince of Wales Island, Ketchikan District, Prince of Wales-Outer Ketchikan Borough, Alaska, USA
A superb, cabinet-sized epidote specimen from Green Monster Mountain on Prince of Wales Island, Alaska, USA! This specimen features two large, robust epidote crystals with dark green color and high luster grown together on a bit of garnet skarn matrix. Small quartz crystals can be seen in association. The piece was collected in the 1970s by Lee Myers, who was a lease-holder at green monster, during that decade. No significant damage. Blake Barnett photo.
