Set of 6 Phantom & Amphibole Quartz
A set of six rare amphibole phantom quartz and clear phantom quartz crystals from Brazil with the inclusion of one or more Amphibole minerals. Common inclusions are Hematite (often presents in red), Limonite (often presents in yellow) and Kaolinite (white). These are Grade A quality Amphibole quartz indicated by the very high translucency within the quartz and the beautiful and crisp inclusions and phantom markings. These pieces are also tumbled and polished smooth, this not only makes them great to hold but allows better visibility to the beautiful inclusion and phantom markings within the quartz!
You will receive 6 pieces and they will be a mix of Clear Quartz and Amphibole Quartz. Any perfectly clear quartz points that you receive will have phantoms! An example of this is shown in the second photo. Phantoms present as translucent cloud-like layers that mimic the final shape of the termination and crystal faces. Each phantom marking represents a stage in the growth of the crystal, and each one of these stages can last for hundreds of thousands of years! Phantoms markings can also be coated in secondary mineral. Learn more about these special pieces here on the Phantoms page.
You will receive six pieces that range from approximately 1" - 2". I make great efforts to included a nice mix of clear quartz with phantoms, clear quartz with amphibole inclusion as well as the occasional amphibole quartz WITH phantom markings! I only package up sets of 6 pieces that I would love to receive myself.
