Smoky Phantom Quartz Point
This beautiful deep Smoky Quartz point crystal point has a very bright, crisp and distinct phantom marking towards the tip of the piece. This piece measures 40mm in length. This piece is tumbled and polished which not only makes it great to hold but also allows better visibility to the beautiful inclusion and phantom markings inside!
Phantoms in crystals 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! There can be one marking or many. Phantom markings can also be coated in secondary mineral (which is the case in this piece). Learn more about these special pieces here on the Phantoms page.
