This is a spectacular piece of Quartz. For me and in my opinion, quartz is one of the most undervalued gemstones in the trade and there are many spectacular pieces out there, this being in amongst them. The golden needles in the rutile quartz are thin and thick and the quartz itself is transparent giving this very delicate play of lines with the pastel colored needles. THe quartz itself picks up on an almost peach color every now and then along the edges of the facet cuts. A very large stone at it's size and just would look stunning in a piece of jewellery. Even for a collector, it would be a nice specimen to have.
