Quartz Crystal with Patches of Light Colouring – NBB 169

Quartz crystal with light patches of amethyst and smoky




Measurements:  52 x 15 x 13 mm

Description:  A clear quartz crystal with patches of very light amethyst and only a touch of smoky colouring, and a cloudy area just above its midline. The lower part has a few crystal inclusions.

There is a flaw across one of the termination facets, and one at the base of the adjoining one. Also a very small nick on one of the termination ridges, and a few extremely minute nicks (hardly visible to the naked eye) to the narrow female termination tip. One side of the crystal is damaged, starting off with a very narrow nick on the facet ridge, which then widens towards the base, where it ends in a flaw. In the lower part are also a few pressure marks. Despite this mentioned damage, it is still a lovely crystal.
