Mamuju area; Sulawesi Barat Province; Sulawesi, Indonesia
79mm x 59mm x 41mm

Light to medium purple cluster comprised of translucent radial quartz spheres, up to 3 mm across. There is some debate as to whether or not these spheres are composed of fibrous chalcedony or crystalline quartz. Unlike many specimens, this one sparkles in direct light from the presence of numerous micro drusy crystal faces. Very clean of damage on the front side for one of these.
