Description

A plate of well formed quartz crystals on a thin hematite and quartz matrix with micro quartz crystals on the reverse. Most of the crystals on the display face are undamaged, a nice bright specimen. The hematite is inside each quartz crystal so most crystals are half smokey quartz and half reddish hematite. An interesting and curious combination.
