Quartz Crystals on Matrix - SWCC 029

Beautiful quartz crystal group on matrix, many double terminated

Measurements:  83 x 36 x 36 mm

Description:  A group of clear quartz crystals, many double terminated, with some having beautiful "stepped" faces. The crystals sit on a sandstone matrix. 

When tilted in light, a tiny rainbow can be seen in two of the bigger crystals. The bottom of the specimen also has several small crystals and facets. With the help of a loupe, it is possilble to see inclusions of minute balls of olive-green chlinoclore in a double terminated group.

A few crystals have small nicks.

This specimen was part of an unusual pocket found by us in 2018. We cleaned it as best we could, but due to its complex growth, there are still quite a few bits of plant material trapped among the crystals.
