A long, thin Quartz crystal with a number of smaller crystals radiating from one side. Crystals with this habit are referred to metaphysically speaking as Laser or Lazer crystals. The Quartz is clear to slightly milky in transparency and has unidentified inclusions which range in color from dark brown to reddish brown. There are quite a bit of the reddish inclusions where the largest sub crystals join the main crystal. In this area, one of the smaller crystals is partially included in the largest crystal. The Quartz has a good luster, more so in the smaller crystals, many of which are transparent and some are double terminated. The termination of the largest crystal is complex with mutiple terminations.
