A cluster of heavily-intergrown Quartz crystals makes up this rather odd specimen. Two of the crystals are far larger than the rest, making up nearly the entire mass and volume of the piece. Their hexagonal prismatic form is quite good, though their terminations are rather disseminated- each termination is divided up into 2 or more pyramids that are intergrown but still individuals. Otherwise, their edges are straight and well-defined, and their faces are clean and possess the standard vitreous luster. All are colorless and translucent to dimly transparent due to the presence of many cloudy inclusions and numerous internal fractures. There is no base or host material present.
