A cluster of clear, sharply terminated Quartz crystals is host to several dark color Schorl Tourmaline crystals included within the center. The Schorl crystals are visible from both the front and back of the Quartz cluster. It comes with a very detailed Bob Trimingham label that notes an excellent provenance from some well-known collectors. No damage to any of the main crystals and only a minor amount of micro-chipping.
