This Quartz cluster is in very good condition- 2 crystals show small areas of visible damage, but this damage is old and slightly healed over. The largest crystal in the cluster has dimensions of 2.8 x 0.7 x 0.6" (7.1 x 1.8 x 1.5 cm) and like the others, has excellent hexagonal prismatic form, with well-defined edges and clean faces that possess a somewhat dull vitreous luster. All are transparent and quite clear, containing only a few cloudy inclusions. All have a rather bright yellow coloration with a noticeable orange tinge that is caused by a layer of iron oxide which is trapped just beneath the surface of each crystal. There is no host rock present.
