Quartz Crystal Specimen with Faden Bands NBB 005

Lovely quartz crystal specimen with faden bands and double terminations

Measurements:  46 x 42 x 35 mm

Description:  A beautiful quartz crystal specimen consisting of a few  crystals (mostly double terminated), sitting on a group of low quality quartz crystals, partially covered with very minute quartz crystals. Most of the bigger crystals have prominent faden bands, and are quite gemmy. 

The specimen comes from a rare find in 2015.

The terminations appear to be without damage, while the shafts have only a few very minute nicks, barely visible with the naked eye. 

The 2nd biggest crystal has a white area on its secondary end, where bits of quartz are attached in an indentation - looks like possibly something had been attached there previously. Just below there, at its back, is a contact mark and a nick.
