Is the green phantom quartz real?

I was told that this was lab grown, is that true?

Yes, I think this type of green phantom quartz is lab grown in China. It would help to see a photo of the bottom.

Welcome to Mindat Aundrea !

Yes, that's almost for sure lab grown in China like Alfredo said.

Welcome to Mindat, Aundrea!

Agree with others.... lab grown.
Still, a beautiful specimen.
