Quartz with Inclusions
Availability: 1 in stock
A stoudt 5.5cmX3.5cm central crystal surrounded by sisters, each having colored inclusions, many of which are clearly phantoms. The colors range from lemon yellow to orange to to brick red, looking like a kaleidoscope as you turn the specimen in hand. One surface area has an internal fracture that looks like a bird (you cannot feel it on the surface). All in all a most fascinating, colorful, balanced piece. Some minor chipping at the tip of the main crystal.
