Quartz var Amethyst

Quartz var Amethyst from Harts Range NT


    An interesting specimen of milky quartz with secondary amethyst overgrowth from Harts Range Northern Territory. The amethyst overgrowth shows some nice purple-saturated tips and even has tourmaline needles throughout it. Overall a great size for the area.

    I acquired this specimen from Patrick Gundersen in December 2016, who self-collected it a few years prior on a digging trip to the Harts Range area.

    Did you know!?
    Harts Range is a very mineral rich area and specimens such as Ruby, Garnet, Beryl, Iolite, Epidote and other semi-precious stones have been found sporadically over the last 20 years.
