Large Fenster generator Crystal, multi recorder double terminated
elestial features Astonishing shamanic energy. Skeletal quartz
(more popularly known as Elestial Quartz or Jacare
Quartz) exhibits unique internal and external dissolution-growth
features resulting from unstable conditions during crystallization.
These skeletal growth features occur most often in the macrocrystalline
quartz varieties rock crystal and smoky quartz, occuring more
rarely in citrine or amethyst. Skeletal quartz crystals often
form with a geometric pattern of lines, depressions and raised
terminations (related to the quartz crystal structure) etched
into their surface. Internally, these crystals exhibit plainly
visible cavities in geometric patterns (also related to the quartz
crystal structure) which can contain clay minerals of varied colors,
sometimes accompanied by carbon dioxide or water. These cavities
often have a layered or ribbed aspect and are sometimes so pronounced
as to make the crystal almost hollow, giving rise to the term
skeletal quartz. Occaisionally these cavities contain
both liguid and gas phases together known as two-phase inclusions.
In rare cases, these two-phase inclusions in quartz can be visible
to the unaided eye and may show actual movement of the gas phase
within the liquid phase (popularly known as elestial quartz crystal
