Item Description

This stone features several Rutile / Hematite needles inside of a "Flat Freeform" cut stone of Amethyst / colorless Quartz. 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 mostly likely the inclusions are Goethite and Hematite. A very cool and colorful "inclusion" gem.
