Quartz from Pakistan

This month we feature a massive quartz from Pakistan. It's an impressive size even for a fine quartz crystal, but this one has an added dimension that makes it quite unique. From its original crystalized state an exsolution process has created beautifully etched crystal faces with wild jagged patterns. The crystal has maintained its transparency on the inside but the surface has been transformed into a complex geometric puzzle. There is even a linear vug wrapping around the crystal like a cliffside cavern (see photos here).

Beauty on many levels and not to mention pristine with no real damage…a complete specimen. From the Shigar Valley, Gilgit-Baltistan in the northern areas of Pakistan.
