JC9128 Quartz.  Hot Springs blowout, nr. Adam peak, east side Osgood mountains, Potosi district, Humboldt county, Nevada.    4.5 x 5.5 x 8.5 cm  174g  $40.00.   Better than average quality from here, with nice luster on the crystals.  There is a very very slight amethyst tint, not at all obvious.  These quartz crystals come from an old, and long since dormant hot spring occurrence on the east side of Adam peak.  Originally it was open to the air, and specimens could be collected from down in the throat of the dried up spring.  Many crystals were sand blasted on one side, where sand laden water surged against the crystals and literally rounded them off over time.   The occurrence is now filled in and any remaining crystals are deeply buried.   These are a few examples of specimens from this rather unique occurrence.   Collected about 20 years ago.   I had this one in my collection fro the past 20 years.
