Beautiful lavender specimen of “cactus” amethyst quartz (also known as “spirit quartz”). In this type of quartz, the central prismatic crystals are overgrown by smaller crystals, giving it the appearance of a cactus with spines. The presence of iron oxides gives some portions of the specimen an orange coloration.
