This lemurian quartz point has been polished along about 75% of the upper part of the crystal, with the base left rough. The metal stand is custom made for the crystal. The top portion of the crystal is wonderfully clear, and there are some chlorite and internal fracture inclusions toward the bottom.
Measurements on stand: ~9-1/2" Tall x 3-1/2" Wide x 2-3/4" Deep, Crystal measures ~8" tall x 2-1/2" wide
Location: Brazil, South America
Clear Quartz is one of the most admired minerals by both geology enthusiasts and those practicing the Metaphysical properties of minerals. Quartz is composed of silica (SiO2), and forms an important part of most igneous rocks. Quartz occurs in crystalline masses, and when conditions permit, it forms hexagonal crystals. Perfect crystals are rare. Industrially, crystal Quartz can be cut in a certain way in order for it to produce an electrical charge. This effect makes Quartz very useful for radio, television, and radar. Colors or inclusions in Quartz are due to the presence of other minerals (particularly iron), combining with Quartz during its formation. Common varieties are rose quartz, amethyst, citrine, rutilated, and tourmalinated quartz. Lemurian crystals have horizontal striations on one or more sides.
