Spectacular Tower of Quartz! Over 19 lbs. of 100% Quartz stands tall, an imposing statue of polished, transparent Clear Rock Quartz. It's really a challenge to portray the sheer mass of an XL crystal - photos don't always capture the hefty nature of these super large points. But imagine the weight of a 20-lb. sack of flour. That's how heavy this dude is, and it is only a single point! Inside you'll see an intricate network of inclusions that create colorful flashes of rainbow colors, viewable from just about any vantage. Precise wispy veils, and a few tiny spots of yellow/brown Hematite also add a bit of fun interior interest. On the exterior, surfaces are polished, but only to a degree. "Naturals" (areas where inner formations meet the outer surfaces) are available on all surfaces, especially along the facet edges, which will feel a little rough to the touch (particularly around the base edges that also have a couple of barely noticeable nicks). For those who have an interest, this awesome crystal is also ID'd as a Channeling Crystal (has a 7-sided facet face with a perfect triangle directly opposite). I won't go into detail here, but a Google search should provide an abundance of info on Channeling Crystals (or contact me for book references). Bottom line? The sheer size, weight, inner character and energy of this Quartz piece bestow it with a regal presence that smaller, less endowed specimens simply cannot match. A super centerpiece, "working" piece AND conversation piece! Brazil.
