What a unique, two-varietal Quartz scepter from Madagascar! A primary, transparent to translucent colorless "rock crystal" Quartz cluster has the largest crystal graced with an incredibly stout and impressive, purple Amethyst overgrowth! The Quartz crystal cluster is nice as a pedestal for the imposing, doubly terminated Amethyst scepter looming on top. A striking, dark purple phantom is easily seen without need of strong backlighting (as usual)! The Amethyst is doubly terminated and is 7cm from tip to tip! The Amethyst also exhibits a satiny luster, contrasting to the quartz. A dramatic sceptered Quartz piece with multiple colors of the same species together in association, and inside as phantoms.!
