A magnificent polished quartz crystal from South Africa. This chunky piece which has been carved into the shape of a terminated point is really quite beautiful. In the right light tiny iridescent rainbows of colour can be seen and if you look carefully, you'll see some fine inclusions of golden coloured rutile. Rutile is one of the most common inclusions found in the mineral quartz.
If you love quartz this piece certainly won't disappoint.
Colourless quartz can be challenging to photograph even for the most accomplished photographer. The only way to really appreciate this impressive mineral is to actually have it in your hands.
An exciting collection of pure magnificence from the natural world.
