27" Polished Quartz Crystal Sword With Artistic Stand

To behold this piece is to be instantly immersed in a storm-tossed naval battle. The sword's glimmering blade slashing through the lightning-illuminated night, expertly wielded by a scraggly swashbuckler carving their way to the prized booty.

This is a piece for the adventurer in all of us.

What we have for you is an extremely fun piece: a 27" long carved, quartz crystal scimitar sword. This sword is extremely realistic and has exceptional clarity throughout. The blade is splattered with internal fracturing that adds an outstanding pattern to an already appealing specimen. At various points on the blade are red splotches most likely caused by hematite inclusions. This adds an extra dollop of awesomeness to this fearsome faux weapon. The craftsmanship present on this specimen is indicative of a skilled carver with a bright imagination. A portion of the handle near the guard has some chipping where the quartz naturally fractured during the shaping process.

Comes with the pictured, chain-wrapped display stand that elevates the ferocity of the piece.

Quartz is the name given to silicon dioxide (SiO2) and is the second most abundant mineral in the Earth's crust. Quartz crystals generally grow in silica-rich environments--usually igneous rocks or hydrothermal environments like geothermal waters--at temperatures between 100°C and 450°C, and usually under very high pressure. In either case, crystals will precipitate as temperatures cool, just as ice gradually forms when water freezes. Quartz veins are formed when open fissures are filled with hot water during the closing stages of mountain formation: these veins can be hundreds of millions of years old.
