Comment: An unusual specimen for a Michigan collector, of quartz crystals on a matrix of, and with inclusions of, green chlorite. Chlorite-included quartz is common from Switzerland, Arkansas and a number of other localities, but you do not see many examples from Michigan. Ex. Steven L. Kay Collection.
