Fascinating and striking doubly terminated included quartz crystals from the Orange River and the Heini Soltau Collection. First is a very sculptural cluster of terminated frosted milky quartz crystals. Dramatic second generation very glassy transparent overgrowths follow. Fantastically and colorfully, some of the second generation termination faces are preferentially included with hematite and SOME are included with light yellow-green clays! Second generation quartz made the crystals doubly terminated on the bottom. A surreal, rare and highly unusual 3-sided included quartz crystal cluster.
