Measurements: 84 x 78 x 53 mm
Description: A group of quartz crystals with the largest crystal being double terminated. The specimen has bits of goethite on it, and it also covers a large part of its bottom.
It is one of those instances where photographs don't do justice to the subject. When looking at it through a loupe or merely tilting it in light, one sees the multiple terminations and facets of varying sizes.
The specimen, which was part of a really super pocket, has only a few very small nicks, and displays well on a flat surface, all-round.
