Item Description

A striking, doubly terminated, floater, quartz crystal is included with purple fluorite octahedrons to 3 mm. The lightly frosted, preferentially etched and coated, water-clear quartz crystal is complete all-around, nearly pristine, with only a trivial bit of edge and termination wear. This very uncommon find from Madagascar a few years ago represented one of the few new sensations at the Tucson Show. These remain an impressive and highly representative example of this rare Madagascar combination. No more have been forthcoming.
