Phantom quartz crystal cluster

Description:  A cluster of clear quartz crystals with blueish-grey phantoms in most of the crystals. Some of the crystals have slightly milky patches.

One of the crystals has a long nick from its tip along one of its termination ridges (clearly visible in first image) and one has a nick and a ding, the latter giving rise to a small rainbow. Otherwise a few minute nicks, and some damage to the bottom, where it parted from its matrix. 

This specimen comes from a rare pocket - as far as we know it's the only pocket in the Western Cape that yields specimens with these phantoms.
