Quartz Var Amethyst

ID: CC3828

A somewhat unusual lustrous Amethystine Quartz specimen from the Goboboseb Mountains, Namibia. Two parallel growth crystals measuring to 11cm, are piggy backed on a crystal of Amethyst measuring to 17.2cm with excellent sharp double termination. The crystals are a pastel purple colour, with colourless to white areas. Here and there are hollows and indentations that were probably once filled by clay minerals. Around the base of the two parallel growth crystals is a radial cluster of Quartz crystals. An out of the ordinary Quartz specimen from the area.
