Quartz - with red and black phantoms
Orange River, Namakwa
Karas Region, Namibia
3.6 x 2.9 x 2.7 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $230
new year 2021

Two main Quartz crystals both with distinct phantoms inside clear prisms. From the finds a few years ago at Orange river, the red color is especially deep on this specimen and the overall esthetics are choice. In excellent condition as seen, this could be trimmed to make a very strong thumbnail but I like this as is. One crystal is much more black in the phantom and the other is mostly red with just hints of black. We understand these are all Hematite inclusions but it is odd that crystals in such close proximity would be so different in color.
