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.
