A stunning twin dipyramidal terminated quartz cluster with very well balanced parallel growth of crystals showcasing cumberland habit from the famous Huanggang Mine, Inner Mongolia. Green Quartz of this kind is also known as "prase quartz" for its deep olive-green color. The prismatic faces appear to have secondary micro quartz crystals, adding real pizzazz to this very three-dimensional piece. In excellent condition, the crystal is highly lustrous, sculptural and dramatic.
