Lustrous Amethyst Quartz crystals with two separate generations of growth. The first generation has large Amethyst crystals measuring to about 4cm thick, with the later generation being overgrowths of smaller crystals on the larger crystals. These are known as 'Cactus Quartz' and this is a large sized example. Very clean with no significant damage, all the tips are perfect, just a bit of chipping/contact near the base. Complete all around.
