From a recent, shocking find of new citrines a few years ago, only a few specimens had such sharp twinning - and seem to be the first known citrine japan-law twins. This one is lustrous and transparent with a lovely golden color. The Japan-law-twin of quartz exhibits the typical flattened habit as you see here, with a join angle of just under 90 degrees. Contacts at the terminations detract slightly from the overall quality and value, but not a whole lot from the display impact or interest of such a rare crystallized form of citrine.
