A mostly transparent Quartz crystal with a number of interesting inclusions. There are thin, needle like crystals of Tourmaline as well as druze Quartz and a few well formed, Quartz crystals. At first, it seemed all of the faces of the termination had been polished. But closer examination showed some had not been, notably one face in which a smaller crystal juts out of the surface. Other faces do seem to show growth lines. Yet others do seem too smooth and some of the corners of the faces do not seem to line up. Polsihing terminations of Quartz crystals is not unheard of in Brazil.

Condition: Good

Flaws: There is chipping on the edges and corners of the termination. It appears some of the smaller faces on the termination may have been polished.
