A magnificent, CABINET cluster of stacked, increasinly larger, water-clear, tabular, quartz crystals with a distinct faden or "string" line clearly visible running through the crystals from top to bottom. All of the crystals are double terminated and have beautiful beveled edges. This is a near floater doubly terminated cluster and looks like a hatchet with two, sharp edges. Nearly pristine. The contact on the back with the smaller crystals is out of sight. This is indeed, a striking and very fine large specimen from this late 1990s find. Specimens of this size and quality disappeared very quickly.
