PAS#015 Dauphiny France Asbestos with Quartz (Amianthus)

Dauphiny, France

Quite an interesting specimen. The American Philosophical Society had a mineral collection that they gave to the Philadephia Academy of Sciences (Talk about brotherly love!). This specimen, labeled "Amianthus - Dauphiny, France" was one of those specimens. The matrix hosts a few small terminated Quartz crystals.
