Cabinet (7.3 x 1.9 x 1.4cm)
A slender twin crystal with lots happening at the termination.
Half of the crystal is made up of milky quartz, but closer to the termination the clarity increases and more inclusions can be seen.
The termination is twinned into 2. Here you can see the amethyst phantoms and loads of little flakes of iron oxide. These lepidochrosite flakes are mostly mirror black or dark blue in color.
Chemical Composition: SiO2
Location: This specimen is from the Gobobos Mountains, Brandberg, Namibia.
