Optically Clear Rock Crystal Quartz Sphere

The present specimen is a true crystal ball cut from the highest quality Brazilian quartz, polished to a brilliant finish. It has a much larger than typical diameter. While rock crystal quartz is seen frequently, one often forgets just how rare optically clear quartz genuinely is.
