This is a fine specimen of red quartz set on hematite rosettes from China. Specimens with crystals of this fine quality are highly desirable. They are colored a rich, deep, blood red, the result of a thin hematite coating which completely covers all of the crystals. The terminations are sharp and well formed, and the shafts are typical 6-sided prisms with very slightly tapering sides. The rich color combined with the fine aesthetics of a multitude of thin crystals sticking straight up and out of the hematite roses at countless angles is very visually pleasing. There are a few broken crystals on the piece, but they do not detract from the specimen's highly aesthetic appearance.
