A cute little dipyramidal terminated quartz scepters with very well balanced parallel growth of crystals showcasing cumberland habit.  The deep olive-green color is due to hedenbergite inclusions, a classic Mongolian quartz sample.  Some of the prismatic faces closer to the termination appear to have matt lustre.
