MGR21 Quartz
Mahaiza Area, Vakinankaratra Region, Antananarivo Province, Madagascar
13.3x 12.6x 7.5 cm

I have said this before, but as a general rule, I try not to buy quartz (amethyst excepted). In Madagascar, I have found that it is frequently necessary to break that rule because of the wide variety and beauty of some of the specimens available. This is a cluster of multiple, double terminated quartz crystals with a slight smokiness. There is minor damage on a couple of the terminations, but it can be displayed from a few different angles with none of this showing. This is a very beautiful piece, with a very three dimensional and sculptural quality.
