3.1 x 2.2 x 2.1 cm. An absolutely water-clear, doubly terminated quartz crystal richly encloses a multitude of black riebeckite blades. This is superb and very rare combination material from Zagi Mountain. The pristine, gemmy quartz is very aesthetically attached to a stalk of matrix. Ex. Herb Obodda specimen.
