Translucent quartz crystal rich in acicular green inclusions (probably epidote) at the base and some lenticular lustrous crystals of hematite that are “floating” inside near the transparent termination. The termination is pristine and with a group of rhombohedral faces clearly dominant and quite symmetrical. The secondary crystal that is missing is naturally broken, with a healed surface. Very infrequent Norwegian locality in collections.
