Quartz with Inclusions
Availability: 1 in stock
A stout 5.5cm X 3.5cm central crystal surrounded by sisters, each having colored inclusions, many of which are clearly phantoms. The colors range from lemon yellow to orange to 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.
