Item Description

A striking and aesthetic cluster of three, doubly terminated, floater, quartz crystals included with three purple fluorite octahedrons to 5 mm. The lightly frosted, preferentially etched and coated, water-clear quartz crystals are complete all-around, very 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. This is definitely one of the finest specimens we got in the small lot we obtained and was just uncovered from the recent move.
