Description

Lustrous waterclear and sharp terminated quartz crystals form this beautiful specimen. The main crystal in the center is raising up vertically, all other crystals are freestanding and they grow in all directions. The tridimensional visual impact is hard to capture with photography - much better in person and also the sparkling character of quartz crystals is much more impressive when you hold the specimen in your hands. Between the quartz crystals you can see glossy, sharp roses of hematite. Spectacular and dramatic assemble and very fine quality. No significant damages to report.
