Crystal, a precious stone, which has been known since ancient times, is the most favourite mineral. In the past, people were using it mainly for tool and cult objects making. Nowadays, crystal plays a significant role in jewellery, but also optics and electronics.

Crystal is the purest, limpid variety of crystalline quartz. Rarely, we can see crystals with the so-called inner crystals of a younger quartz generation – we call them phantoms. These phantoms are usually coloured by other minerals like carbonates, mica, hematite, rutile, graphite, chlorite, sulphide and others. This piece is from Brazil.

Phantom Crystal uniqueness: Phantom crystals are rare minerals highly popular amongst collectors. The minerals in the crystal influence the phantom’s colour – hematite colour it red, graphite turn it black, rutile needles make them gold and phantoms covered in chlorite get green shades.

Special conditions/ treatment: There is no need for special handling with phantom crystal.
