Here is a stunningly beautiful red quartz crystal cluster from the Orange River district in South Africa. The crystals are sharply terminated and well-formed, and feature colorful crimson overcoats that covers the underlying clear quartz. The color is due to inclusions of red iron oxide, which were deposited in a layer on top of the clear quartz.  The luster on this piece is amazing; just the kind of wet look surface that collectors prefer. No damage.
