Sao Geraldo do Baixio, Minas Gerais, Brazil
This is a natural transparent quartz that has been polished to show off its inner secrets. About one third of the way from the top, there is a striking phantom – a remnant of an earlier stage of the quartz’s growth. This phantom is not just a line, but actually gives a 3D rendering of the younger termination where you can actually see the previous crystal faces (almost like a hologram). Near the base are tiny crystals of feldspar which are included completely within the crystal.
