Item Description

Sparkling cluster of glassy and gemmy skeletal Quartz crystals from Morocco. These water-clear, highly-modified, bipyramidal Quartz crystals are clustered at one end of the matrix, and present beautifully. The largest is 4.2 cm, and all have superb luster, clay phantoms, and both internal (overgrown) and external skeletal features. The external features are the classic skeletal growth patterns that everyone envisions. Even just one crystal on matrix would make a fine specimen, but this cluster of four makes for an outstanding specimen for both rarity and aesthetics. Even better in person.
