Clear Quartz Crystal Cluster on Crystal Matrix - SWCC 012

A cluster of lovely gemmy, clear quartz crystals that displays well



Measurements:  30 x 30 x 14 mm

Description:  A cluster of lovely gemmy, clear quartz crystals that displays well on a flat surface. It sits on a milky quartz crystal matrix. One of the lesser crystals (right next to the main crystal - image 2nd from the bottom, left) appears to have broken long ago, and then it healed again, leaving a milky scar, and then started growing in a slightly different direction, with the result that it is now slightly bent.

On closer examination (using a magnifying glass) one can see that the bottom of the specimen is covered with numerous very minute crystal terminations and facets (see images on right).

There are a few natural pressure marks towards the lower part of the specimen. Apart from the end of the milky quartz crystal, that serves as a matrix, where there is just a little bit of damage, the rest of the specimen appears to be perfect.
