This specimen is a lovely example of red quartz over amethyst. The crystals are well-formed and lustrous, and exhibit a deep red color above the characteristic purple of amethyst. The red cap is the result of microscopic inclusions of hematite (iron) in the outermost layer, and the combination of colors makes this a beautiful display specimen from a classic locality.
