Quartz Crystal with Hematite NC 019

Flattish quartz crystal with hematite inclusions

Measurements:  90 x 47 x 22 mm

Description:  A flattish smoky quartz crystal with one side having hematite inclusions. A few areas show exposed first generation quartz with its hematite coating, because the second generation quartz did not cover it completely.

There is a neat pressure mark to the bottom of the crystal (without which it would've been a double terminated specimen) and one of its narrow sides has a pressure mark. The termination point has no notable damage, while the rest of the specimen has only a few small nicks.
