For sale is a great example of this rare form of quartz, capped quartz from Holders Rd, in Tasmania. We were fortunate to have been able to obtain a few of these unique quartz specimen, from the finders, Frank and Trudy Godney. This was I think the largest of the pieces we got. The discovery was made about 10 years ago and there has been no more found since then. The capped nature of these, comes about when sometime during the growth stage, a very fine layer of clay was deposited on the top surface, subsequent growth of the quartz crystal, meant that the new top section growth, can be lifted apart from the base, fitting exquisitely when put back together. Rare, doubly so in this size!!
