Goboboseb has produced a range in color of Quartz crystals ranging from colorless to deep purple and then every shade in between. This particularly sparkly piece has a pair of pale of larger purple Quartz crystals nested among two dozen or so smaller Quartz crystals, all of them displaying perfect terminations! The larger crystals each measure two inches in length, however, one stands taller than the other. Both crystals exhibit light amethystine phantoms in the lower two-thirds of each crystal with the taller one revealing a faint smoky phantom above the amethyst one for beautiful contrast. Both have a barely perceptible cloudy area near the termination but are otherwise limpid. The small, colorless Quartz crystals at the base are all less than an inch in length and just glisten. Ex. Shields and Frances Flynn collection with label.
