One, double terminated Quartz crystal with several, attached sub crystals. Three sides of the Quartz are coated with a druze of small reddish brown colored Hematite crystals and the other three sides are coated with a druze of small Magnesite crystals which are off white in color with a light reddish brown color also due to the presence of Hematite. At one end, the interior of the largest Quartz crystal is quite transparent. The terminations of the crystals are incomplete and appear to have been broken prior to the deposition of Magnesite and Hematite.
Condition: Very Good
Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
