Item Description

This is a stunning, laser-like quartz point, even clear by the normal standards of Alpine style quartz (which generally has a high level of clarity, and is named therefore after the alpine quartz from the Swiss Alps which are the gold standard). It makes most other quartzes look dull and dead, in comparison! This gorgeous Quartz specimen from the renowned Hunza District in Pakistan. The beauty of this sharp, gem-clear crystal is evident, and at 7.2 cm it is even more impressive as a balanced small cabinet sized specimen. It is truly a "gem" quartz specimen, and for the size and style, fairly unique for Pakistan and simply gorgeous for any location. If you saw this, you would think it was Swiss - that is how clean it is. The razor sharp form is the second quality the eye catches. And, it happens to be pristine, 3-dimensional, and complete 360 degrees!
