    Quartz with Phantoms
    Seminário Farm, Joaquim Felício, Minas Gerais, Brazil

    This is a memento from Rock's Quartz mining adventure in Brazil. He and Ed Swoboda produced a lot of Quartz crystals for the Crystal Healing trade, many of which had 'phantom' inclusions. Almost all of these included Quartz had to be polished to show off the 'phantoms.' Very infrequently there would be the odd, well-terminated crystal with great phantoms that also had exceptionally clear crystal faces. There were very, very, very few of these and Rock kept these rarities. This is an extremely fine one from his "stash" of such things: clean, sharp phantoms in a light smoky Quartz body. It has a custom acrylic base.
