Would you like a chance to go on a
Mineral Safari and buy crystals like the
ones on this page ? The next one is
scheduled for April 2010.
For more details  
Shown below are many photos of
smoky quartz scepters from the
Erongo Mountains. The one shown
has hematite streamers that are
oriented to the crystal faces and the
crystal face edges. These are not
plentiful and sometimes they are
not available for purchase at all on
my trips there. Some years a few
can be had.
Be sure to click to enlarge to get a
close look at the hematite
streamers and inclusions.

Shown below is a "Dice Fluorite
Crystal" cluster from Okorusu ,
Note the inclusions inside the fluorite
crystal along with the distinctive
phantoms on the corners which gives it
the features that the name comes from.
