Item Description

A striking, doubly terminated, amethsyt/smoky quartz crystal from recent finds in the famous Goboboseb Mountains. This dramatic piece is super glassy and totally water-clear. The impressive skeletal features, shading variations of the amethyst and smoky colors and clay inclusions are supremely noteworthy. Every turn of this sharp, pseudohexagonal crystal presents an entirely different perspective of the outside and interior of this stunning crystal. Complete all-around and nearly pristine, the contacting on the lower termination has only modest bruising. This is certainly one of the better Brandberg quartzs that we have offered at auction. Fairly valued at $500-700.
