Amethyst (gem clear phantom) with Prehnite and Lepidochrosite
stock #Alec-4-267
Goboboseb Mts., Brandberg area,
Erongo Region, Namibia
10 x 6.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $1450


A superb example of a very fine phantom quartz from this classic location. Pristine, damage free and optically clear main crystal (6 CM tall) is decorated with light green Prehnite balls and holds elegant, wispy phantoms. From every angle this displays well, but my personal favorite is looking straight down from the top (the C axis. The matrix block is sawn on the underside and on some edges, so it sits perfectly on its own. These are often collected using diamond saws to avoid damage. It is possible to further trim the specimen to remove all traces of the sawing, but for me it is fine as is. If you like good quartz, you will love this specimen!
