1.7" Quartz Crystal Cluster - Pakistan

This amazing quartz crystal cluster is fairly transparent and the terminations are in great condition. It was collected in Pakistan at the same location where faden quartz crystal clusters occur.

Silicon Dioxide, also known as SiO2 or Quartz, is the second most abundant mineral in the Earth's crust. Quartz crystals generally grow in silica-rich, hot watery solutions called hydrothermal environments, at temperatures between 100°C and 450°C, and usually under very high pressure. Quartz veins are formed when open fissures are filled with hot water during the closing stages of mountains forming, and can be hundreds of millions of years old.
