Double Terminated Quartz Crystal on Quartz Matrix - NBB 088

Quartz crystal with moving bubbles

Measurements:  45 x 31 x 26 mm

Description:  A stunning specimen consisting of a double terminated quartz crystal with gemmy upper half and faint clouds of very light amethyst colouring, that sits on a thin quartz matrix overcoated with gemmy quartz and calcite crystals. Two of the small calcite crystals have an orangy colouring. 

There are bits of a brown, botryoidal (to us, unknown) mineral on part of the matrix. Due to the delicate nature of the specimen, it has not been cleaned.

The main crystal's main termination ridges have only a few very minute nicks (barely visible with the naked eye), while it's lesser termination has two narrow nicks (not very obvious) and the 2nd biggest crystal has a small nick to its lesser termination point and a pressure mark to its side.
