A stunning dipyramidal terminated quartz scepters with very well balanced parallel growth of crystals showcasing cumberland habit from the famous Huanggang Mine, Inner Mongolia.  The deep olive-green color is due to hedenbergite inclusions, a classic Mongolian quartz sample. Some of the prismatic faces appear to have secondary, micro quartz which gives the crystals a “sugar coating” appearance.  The crystal is highly lustrous, sculptural and dramatic.  In perfect condition.
