Quartz Crystal with 'Fancy' Termination – NBB 003

Quartz crystal with light amethyst fancy termination

Measurements:  25 x 13 x 13 mm

Description:  A small quartz crystal group with the main crystal (18 x 05 x 05 mm) that had possibly started to terminate, and then the tip developed further into another crystal, a tiny semi-sceptre with very light amethyst colouring. This type op termination is called 'tietiebottels' by the local miners, referring to babies' bottles.

The main crystal appears to be perfect, but there is some damage to the very small quartz crystals that sit at the base of the main crystal.
