Wild and spiky specimen of ultra clear quartz.  This piece resembles a dragon head, with striated and stepped "lemurian" crystal faces all over the formation.  There is a main crystal that runs the length of the piece, with the others growing up around it. The clarity and luster is very high, and with basically no damage to any tips, the quality is clearly incredible.


From Boyacá, Colombia.  Shown as recommended on the Large Adjustable Mineral Stand, not included with purchase. Please see the ruler photo for size reference.


Quartz, the most common mineral on earth, is celebrated for its diverse forms, widespread availability, and captivating beauty. Composed of silicon dioxide (SiO₂), quartz crystallizes in the hexagonal system, often forming six-sided prisms terminated with pyramidal ends. This mineral is remarkably hard, ranking 7 on the Mohs hardness scale, which makes it durable and suitable for various uses. Quartz comes in an array of colors and varieties, including clear prismatic crystals, purple amethyst, smoky quartz, agates, jaspers, and much more.


Collectors are particularly drawn to quartz's ability to form large, well-defined crystals and fascinating inclusions, such as rutile needles or chlorite phantoms. Found in a multitude of geological environments, from igneous and metamorphic rocks to hydrothermal veins, notable quartz localities include Brazil, Madagascar, the United States, and Switzerland. The sheer variety and beauty of quartz, combined with its robust nature, make it an essential and versatile addition to any mineral enthusiast's collection.
