Quartz Crystals on Unusual Matrix - NBB 021

Gemmy quartz crystal cluster on delicate, unusual matrix







Measurements:  56 x 53 x 40 mm  

Description: A cluster of gemmy, clear quartz crystals, together with a few gemmy clacite crystals, sit on an interesting, delicate matrix consisting of quartz crystals with quartz or calcite. 

Many of the quartz crystals are grouped together in tiny clusters, all making up the main specimen cluster. The specimen has several cavities, lined with tiny quartz crystal. There are numerous bits of brown botryoidal mineral (unknown to us), scattered on the specimen, mainly on the matrix. The specimen has not been cleaned, due to its delicate nature.

The specimen has very little damage - the little there is, is mostly to its bottom.
