This is easily one of the most unique, novel, bizarre, fake-looking, and simply downright unusual specimens of quartz I have ever seen. It happens also to be from an old classic an dhighly desirable locale, too! A beautifully formed crystal of, translucent, pastel-amethystine quartz is the scepter atop a terminated shaft of translucent, green, hedenbergite-included quartz. When backlit, it practically glows with soft colors. The mineral gods were definitely working overtime to create this amazing, one of a kind, doubly terminated specimen. It is to me, one of the most striking pieces in this collection.
