The termination and sides of this clear quartz crystal are shaped into a rare formation called cathedral quartz. The name is said to come from the resemblance to the buttresses, arches, arcades, and doorways of a gothic cathedral, though I think it also resembles the turrets and battlements of a medieval castle. Another name for this formation is lightbrary quartz.  I acquired this amazing crystal from a wholesale dealer in Aracuai during my 2016 trip to Minas Gerais.
