Cactus Quartz Crystal Group - SKW 032

Cactus quartz crystal group, light amethyst

Measurements:  155 x 92 x 72 mm

Description:  A specimen consisting of several very light amethyst coloured cactus quartz crystals on a quartz matrix, which has been trimmed at the bottom, so it displays better. There are patches of light citrine-like colouring, possibly caused by iron oxide having been captured during the growth process. A few of the terminations have orangy / pinkish colouring inside.

A few of the crystals have broken off, and a few of the termination points have quite big nicks, and some smaller nicks overall. Despite this mentioned damage, the specimen looks good overall and displays well on a flat surface.
