Quartz, Hematite

Specimen # 201121
Mineral: Quartz, Hematite Inclusions
Location: Brazil
Size: 3.2 x 3.1 x 0.5 cm


This piece of quartz has been cut and polished to highlight the beautiful hematite inclusions it contains. The inclusions are mostly highly elongated silvery black needle-like growths, and some have transparent red platy crystals in association – they look awesome under magnification. The amethystine zone at the bottom adds nice purple to this piece from the John S. White quartz collection.
