Description:This is a great, showy group of the now well-known Quartzes included with slight green "phantoms" of Fuchsite mica. What makes it so important is that the phantoms are so sharp and distinct along with being complete AND 3-dimensional as if they were laser-carved! There are some small imperfections here and there, but the piece is so aesthetic and eye-catching that it's forgivable. The largest individual Quartz measures 5.2 cm long. The piece looks great from several angles as displayed and is just as attractive up close. These are so distinctive and unique, and a must have for ANY Quartz collector. It seems that these specimens have completely dried up on the market, so if you missed out on these a few years ago, now is a great time to get a good specimen for a great price. Valued in the inventory at $1,650.
