mined by ourselves. Follow this link for a microscopic image of one of these minute balls in a similar crystal, and more information. 

The brown patches are probably iron oxide that had settled on the original crystal, then captured beneath a thin secondary layer of clear quartz growth. Two of the termination facets have dull areas of partially exposed phantoms. 

The only notable damage to the crystal is a few contact / pressure marks near its base.
