Epidote Specimens From China

 

                                 Epidote on Quartz

 

 

Epidote, in good collector grade specimens, has been uncommon from China, so far.  The Ping Wu Mine has produced great quantities of nice quartz with green, translucent epidote.  These pieces are aesthetic and easy to find at mineral shows and on the internet.  Other locales have produced crystals in large sizes and even some of gem grade but not in the numbers produced at Ping Wu.
