This is an excellent specimen of "cactus quartz", as a single large prismatic quartz crystalarrises from a cluster of smaller crystals. The sides of all of the quartz crystals are coated with a druze of tiny quartz crystrals, giving the specimen a prickly appearance and feel. Only the terminations are free of the druze. The specimen stands nicely on its own.
