This interesting specimen is capped quartz, an “extream form of phantom quartz”. A rarely seen form of quartz, capped quartz, this comes from Holders Rd Trowutta, Tas. The name capped quartz comes from the fact that there are two parts to the crystal, that can be separated and put back together! This came about when the growth of the original quartz was interrupter by a deposition of clay(usually) during its growth process. An unusual feature of this specimen is that the capped is towards the base of the specimen, the first time I have ever seen this. Collected by and from the collection of Frank and Trudy Godney. This is a nice specimen of Australian quartz. These are not seen often in the market, if at all. Great size, and nice terminated cap , not too common. These are seriously few and far between, please try and find another for sale anywhere, from anywhere. We were fortunate to have access to these soon after there was a small find, we recognized there special nature, so we obtained as many as we could purchase at that time
