An exquisite light grey druzy quartz stalactite cluster with details in green celadonite and white quartz. This piece is very special due to its light grey colour, overlaid with a double layer of white quartz causing an intense sparkle. It’s a very decorative piece not just for its good size but also for its easily combined colour combination. The edges of this piece are polished, revealingtracesofthevibrantgreenceladoniteandthegreyagate,creating a stunning frame for the druzy quartz. This entire formation is swathed in several layers of small white quartz crystals, and is further adorned with two stalactites polished at the top to expose the cross-sectional nature. The back of the piece maintains its rough basalt condition, and the sculpture is displayed on a custom metal stand. This piece is a wondrous combination of mineralogical information and decorative aestheticism.
