Item Description

A classic piece of these lovely and well-known Quartz specimen featuring a group of sharp, well-formed hexagonal prisms measuring up to 1.7 cm long which have a coating of stark red Hematite on the surface. You can see on the edges of the piece that the underlain Quartz is white/colorless, so this piece has a coating of Hematite, not inclusions, but the effect is still just as impactful. Overall the piece is in good condition, but there are a few rough spots, so it's not completely pristine. That stark red color is incredibly eye-catching, a hallmark of these famous Quartz specimens from the Orange River (along the border between Namibia and South Africa). From the collection of Jelani Daniel.
