This is an exceptional specimen of cathedral quartz, so called because the way the crystal forms resembles the buttresses, arcades and doorways of a medieval cathedral. The sides of the crystal are highly detailed, with far more shoulder-like areas that jut out form the main crystal than you usually see. The quartz is water clear and gem-like, too, a characteristic of what is known as a lightbrary formation. This piece is one of my favorite finds from my 2016 trip to Brazil.
