Light Amethyst Quartz Crystal – NBB 160

Light amethyst quartz crystal with lovely gas inclusions

Measurements:  34 x 13 x 10 mm                                               

Description:  A quartz crystal with light amethyst colouring, which gets more concentrated towards its termination.  It has lovely gas inclusions and minute, reddish hematite specks. A few of the termination facets have slightly raised patterns.

Bits of feldspar attached to some of the termination facets, and to its bottom.

At first glance there appears to be a fairly big nick to the termination, but looking closer, one can see that it is, in fact, the ridge of a growth pattern (image on right). Towards the back of that, the termination has a very minute nick.
