Phantom Quartz Crystal Group – SNCO 043

Phantom quartz crystal group

Measurements:  80 x 55 x 45 mm

Description:  At least six milky to clear phantom quartz crystals share a matrix of quartz, with bits of feldspar. The 1st generation crystals receive a fine sprinkling of orangy-red iron oxide specks, and then received a 2nd generation of clear quartz growth. Two of the crystals have patches of a thin (what appears to be) feldspar coating on their termination facets. 

The largest crystal as a neat, prominent pressure mark to its back, while two of the smaller crystals also have pressure marks. The terminations have only a few minute to small nicks.
