Item Description

This is a fantastic Goboboseb Quartz crystal with wonderful complexity! This sharply formed crystal has a stacked series of ethereal Amethystine and Smoky phantoms that dominate the mid-section of the crystal. The lower portion of the crystal is milky and turbid then transitions rather quickly into a transparent, nebulous pale smoky zone with numerous, intriguing fluid and gas bubbles and this area is capped by two distinct Amethyst phantoms, one more pronounced and richer purple than the other. Depending on the orientation, these almost appear as crystals within the crystal! These transition into another transparent area with an ethereal smoky phantom that has a sharp point but diffuse "faces". The top of the Quartz crystal is completely colorless and transparent with a perfect, razor sharp termination. It has one area of contact on the side from what was another attached Quartz crystal and the bottom is contacted where removed from the pocket. Mass of this beauty is 65.3 grams. Such fine crystals normally go for $500-1000 on their own, without the buble enhydros, which should add extra interest and value to this very beautiful piece.
