Description:A classic specimen of rich red prismatic Quartz crystals whose color comes from iron-inclusions. The crystals are sharp and lustrous, and actually show slight "Fenster" growths on the reverse side. The piece looks beautiful, and with a bit of backlighting you can actually see a bit of a "phantom" below the surface. These classic specimens from the Orange River are now considered classics among collectors and dealers. Ex Charlie Key personal collection. Charlie is arguably the most sucessful dealer of the second half of the 20th century, along with being the namesake for TWO mineral species (Keyite and Ludlockite).
