Beautiful quartz crystals with calcite and prehnite, on matrix

Description:  A beautiful specimen consisting of several lovely quartz crystals, some with a faint amethyst colouring, and some having beautiful red and blueish hematite inclusions, along with several calcite and a few straw-coloured prehnite crystals, on a basalt matrix. 

The harlequin crystal appears to be without any damage. Some of the other crystals have a few minute to small nicks. There is some damage towards some of the edges of the specimen, and near the side are the remains of a quartz crystal that broke off previously.

The specimen, which has been trimmed on one of its short sides, displays well on a flat surface.
