‘Phantoms’ are internal growths within a crystal, often manifesting as distinct layers that are visible from the outside. They can tell a visual narrative of the crystal’s formation and can also result in an attractive specimen that has both depth and complexity.

Collectors are often drawn to the intricate patterns and the fascinating geological processes that resulted in the formation of these phantoms, making them prized additions to any mineral collection. This is a striking example, with a large, spear-like quartz containing distinct graphite phantoms within.

It is complemented by a secondary quartz that mirrors its form. The piece has been lightly polished to reveal its unusual inclusions and clarity.

With its translucency and impressive size, it would make a striking conversation piece in any room.
