A particularly aesthetic arrangement of quartz crystals, with the main crystal dominating, and everal smaller crystals arranged mostly around its base. All of the crystals are doubly-terminated – this cluster formed as a floater with no point of attachment. The crystals are sharp with good lustre, the pyramidal faces are particularly glassy. In excellent condition. A couple of the smallest crystals are incomplete, and there are micro chips, but the quality is exceptional for this find. A great piece.

About These Tinejdad Red Quartz Crystals
The quartz crystals from the Tinejdad area contain red colouring, red zones, or distinct red phantoms, due to included iron. Ferruginous quartz specimens were first produced from the locality around 2014. A large number of specimens came out soon after, and almost all were damaged. Collecting care improved somewhat, and the quality improved slightly, as the production of specimens decreased, although it has remained a real challenge to find high-quality specimens. I’ve done my best to render the colour as in daylight – under halogen, they are a rich warm colour, and under LED, the hue is not as warm and red.
