Pale amethyst cactus quartz crystals on matrix

Description:  A specimen consisting of several pale amethyst coloured cactus quartz crystals on a quartz matrix. A few of the crystals have orangy / pinkish colouring inside, possibly due to iron oxide that was trapped during the growth process.

One of the crystals has broken off, and there are a few nicks to the specimen, including some of the points. Despite this mentioned damage, the specimen looks good overall and displays well on a flat surface. The specimen's matrix has been trimmed at the bottom, so it displays  better.
