Description

Natural yellow Goethite coated cactus quartz
A cactus or spirit quartz is a quartz crystal that is encrusted by a second generation of smaller crystals grown on its prism faces.
The smaller crystals always point away from the prism and their orientation is not related to the crystallographic orientation of the central crystal.
Interestingly, the rhombohedral faces of the first generation crystal's tips usually remain free.
