Iridescent Quartz Crystal Cluster (Treated with Titanium)
8 x 7 x 4 cm
Metal-coated crystals are natural crystals, such as Quartz, whose surface has been coated with metal to give them an iridescent metallic sheen. Crystals treated this way are used for decorative purposes. Possible coatings include gold (resulting in a stone called aqua aura), indium, titanium, niobium and copper. While not intended for serious mineral
collectors -they are attractive and are nice gifts to those who like to decorate their desks or other display areas with a pleasing eye catcher.
