Mountain Crystal


This is the largest crystal specimen in Bargrave’s collection obtained while travelling through the Tyrolean Alps. Bought from "the Montecolian man that sold it me told me that he ventured his life to clamber the rocks to gett it". This is a fine and clear piece of quartz rock crystal, prismatic in shape, with one rough surface still soiled.
