Quartz Crystal with Moving Bubbles - NBB 135

Quartz crystal with moving bubbles

Measurements:  57 x 25 x 24 mm

Description:  A quartz crystal with faint clouds of amethyst and smoky colouring, one fair sized (about 2 mm in diametre) and a few small and minute moving bubbles. The crystal also has interesting gas inclusions, some tending to negative crystal inclusions. 

What appears to be (at first glance) a bad nick to the termination point, is actually a contact mark. The crystal has pressure and contact marks near its base, and a flaw.
