Item Description

This stone features dozens of Goethite / Hematite needles inside of a flat "Square Cushion" cut stone of Quartz. There is a slight amount of purple Amethyst in this gem as well. This material is sometimes marketed as "Melody Stone" and boasts that it hosts many different minerals, such as Cacoxenite and Lepidocrocite, but several individuals have informed me that this is not the case, and at best, the inclusions are only Goethite and Hematite.
