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.  It is highly lustrous with second generation smaller Quartz crystals and Calcite pseudomorph grown on the prism faces.
