69.64 ct. Malagasy 'Hematoid' Quartz
A very large and interesting Quartz inclusion piece.
Typically, when the mineral Hematite is present as an inclusion in Quartz, it
consists of well defined and darker platelets. This variety (sometimes simply
called Hematoid Quartz) captures extremely diffuse, almost fibrous, inclusions -
the result being a very attractive overall pinkish-orange bodycolor.
reminds one of the Limonite included Quartz, called 'sunset', which came out of
Brazil several years ago. Large and very consistent example.
