Quartz Crystal with (?)Epidote - NBB 148

Gemmy, clear quartz crystal with layer of (?)epidote under surface

Measurements:  35 x 15 x 12 mm

Description:  A gemmy, clear quartz crystal with small clouds of light amethyst colouring, and a thin deposit of (?)epidote captured just underneath the surface on just more than two of its shaft facets. We're not sure how these minute bits of epidote were capatured just beneath the surface. 

The crystal has a perfect termination, a few small gas inclusions and a few very small quartz crystals at its base. 

The only damage is at its base, where it parted from its matrix.
