This specimen consists of two, parallel, conjoined Quartz crystals. The upper half of the larger crystal, and the upper third of the smaller crystal, are very clear and transparent. Indeed, the top of the larger crystal resembles a prism of cut glass although there are faint growth lines on the faces which are perpendicular to the length of the crystal. Within the larger crystal, there are both smoky and amethyst phantoms. Within the smaller crystal, there are small, platy crystals of Hematite some of which are a dark gray colors while others are a bright reddish color. Within both crystals, there are numerous gas/liquid cavities (sorry, no moving bubbles though).

Condition: Very Good

Flaws: There a few, small, internal cleaves.
