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.
