Orange River, Warmbad, Namibia
5.4 x 2.8 x 2.2 cm.
A very colorful and quite showy specimen of Orange River Quartz crystals from Namibia. It features a pair of sharply terminated crystals of BLOOD-RED Quartz inter-joined to create a gracefully balanced formation as shown. The red coloration is caused by a thin layer of Hematite that covered the original cluster; in this case it has also been covered by a clear layer of Quartz, encasing the first-generation cluster as a PHANTOM. Comes with the custom made stand shown, made from hardened Sculpey(tm) polymer clay. Interesting and quite attractive views most of the way aorund this little jewel.
