Lustrous and sharp Peachy-red/pink Hematite Quartz Crystal associated with Manganoan Calcite crystals. This stunning piece is complete all around and is the rarest and most colorful quartz specimen I have ever seen!!
The lustrous quartz crystal has a transparent core with second generation quartz wrapping around it, it also has a complex growth of tiny quartz points in the area right below the termination. The middle section of the quartz crystal exhibits an extremely rare shinny champagne gold color! The prismatic faces also appear to have third generation, micro quartz which gives it a pebbled appearance.
Peachy-red/pink Manganoan Calcite crystals are attached to the sides and back of the quartz crystal like roses, so beautiful and magical!
