Here is a highly aesthetic specimen of red quartz over amethyst, in a super-saturated blood red color that is highly reminiscent of the wonderful red quartz found in the Orange River region of South Africa. This color is the result of microscopic inclusions of hematite (iron) in the outermost layer of the crystals, which are sharply terminated, flashy and lustrous, and cover the entire specimen.
