A sliver of matrix supports this elongated, well formed, lustrous, translucent to gemmy quartz crystal measuring 6 cm in length. It is framed at its base by smaller quartz crystals. A superb fuchsite phantom is located in the gemmy area just beneath the termination. The fuchsite inclusion is wonderfully colored a rich mint green.
