History & crystal affirmation
These green quartz crystals from China are among the most beautiful and unusual of their kind, compared to any previous and historical localities for such quartz such as Dalnegorsk and Greece. The Mongolian mining complex has 6 different mines, only one of which sporadically produces beautiful, lustrous, sharp crystals. Dark green quartz crystal heavily included by deep green hedenbergite. Classically, these were called “prase” or “prasem” quartz when found in the old days in Greece, the color being due to the calcium iron silicate, hedenbergite, inclusions.
Crystal affirmation: I remember.
