A specimen of a twin, or twinned quartz crystal with 2 bridge crystals. A twin crystal (also called twinning) is recognized as two individual quartz crystals that have grown together to the extent that they have merged, but terminated separately. Twinned crystals may be contact or penetration twins. Contact twins typically have grown side to side and share a common facet point. This one is a penetration twin; the individual crystals grew point to point, as though they are passing through each other. The above, middle picture is the best image of the penetration twins. Twin crystals of a similar size, are used metaphysically to help find our soul-mate and promote togetherness.
This twinned specimen also has two bridge crystals. A bridge crystal is recognized as a smaller crystal which is part in and part out of a larger crystal. The larger crystal formed, or "flowed" around the smaller, which was already completely formed. Bridge quartz are a bit rare and a very nice addition to a collection. The double terminated bridge crystals here measure 13.5x8.5 mm and 7x6 mm. One is clear, the other cloudy.
Overall clarity of the large twinned quartz is cloudy. Against the clear bridge, it makes an interesting contrast.
Matrix marks are minimal, and seen in the pictures. Most facets are clean, smooth and complete.
It is a fine specimen of a twin, or twinned quartz crystal.
