This is a cluster of sharp quartz crystals featuring a number of red phantoms, and most notably the one superb transparent quartz with the deep red in the centre of the specimen. This central phantom is particularly sharp, inside a very clear quartz – very three-dimensional and looks as if it is frozen in ice. In excellent condition, no damage. A great red phantom quartz.

About these Red Phantom Quartz Specimens
These quartz crystals with red phantoms from Orange River are from a pocket found in 2016. Red quartz has been produced from this locality for many years, however, long-time South African dealer Clive Queit told me he has never seen any he liked as much as these, because these have such distinct red phantoms enclosed in sharp, clear quartz crystals – in his view they are the best.
