Description

This is a quartz crystal which has been polished to show the exceptional red hematite inclusions as a phantom zone inside the crystal's termination.   The effect is very stunning and unique.  This crystal and two others were rescued from a cutter that was going to cut a pendant or ring stone from it. Luckily he had a dozen of these and was willing to let me have a few.  I imagine the others are in jewelry by now.
