    Here is a 'jaw' of slightly smoky faden quartz from an uncommon locality in the Grande Rousses massif: the Couard pass. Notice the textbook preferential dissolution pattern on some faces of the quartz, revealing the internal Dauphiné-law twinning of the crystals.A very good locality specimen from Oisans.
