This huge Quartz Crystal Cluster with Calcite Stalactites was originally found on the ceiling of a geode cave. We have leveled the base of this giant formation with cement so it stands tall and proud. It can also be displayed horizontally, for a more forest-like effect.

Quartz crystal points cover the original calcite stalactites (soda straw formations).

While the original calcite grew by water drops over eons, the drusy crystal quartz, a secondary growth, rapidly formed pure crystal casings on the calcite.
