The Quartz specimens from the Goboboseb Mountains, are some of the most iconic examples of Quartz in the modern era of mineral collecting. The wide range of habits and colors found in the specimens from this area is dazzling, creating some of the most attractive display specimens of Quartz you'll see. It should be noted that most of these specimens are labeled as coming from Brandberg, but the actual pieces come from the mountains about 8 miles away from there. This large miniature display specimen is a fantastic and showy piece featuring several sharp, lustrous, gemmy smoky colored scepter crystals sitting atop a thin branching purplish-pink "Amethystine" crystal group. I love the stark contrast between the scepter crystals and the original crystals underneath, as you almost never see this combination in the nature. What's more is that the piece is so incredibly aesthetic, with crystals flaring in all directions, and the piece is nearly a complete "floater", as it's crystallized all the way around, with only a small point of attachment on the back. You just don't see pieces like this from the Goboboseb Mountains these days, but the pocket that produced these particular specimens is one of my favorites because these pieces are so singular and beautiful.
