A simply magnificent cluster of quartz crystals from the province of Balochistan, Pakistan. A tabular faden crystal is surrounded by more sharp crystals jutting out in all directions. Many of these are grouped together symmetrically and at one point they make a clearly visible "keyhole" made by a chain of quartz. Just about all of the crystals are in perfect condition. There's a contact point on one of the larger crystals, yet it can easily be hidden without sacrificing any of the aesthetic value. On one side is a patch of chlorite, furthering the beauty found in this fine piece. It's incredible that such a large specimen was able to be extracted without any further damage!
