Spirit Cactus Quartz Crystal Mineral Specimen For SaleSpirit Quartz (Cactus Quartz)

 
Rocks, Minerals, and Fossils Spirit Quartz (also called Cactus Quartz) is a variety of Quartz formed when a Quartz or Amethyst crystal is encrusted with a second generation of crystals that grow on the faces of the original crystal.  The smaller second-generation crystals point away from the prism faces, and their orientation is unrelated to the crystallographic orientation of the central crystal.  The rhombohedral faces on the tip of the first-generation crystal often remain free.

Second-generation crystals can be Amethyst (violet), Citrine (golden), Clear, Smoky, or Milky Quartz, or a combination.

Because of its prickly appearance, Spirit Quartz has also been called Cactus Quartz, Pineapple Quartz, and Porcupine Quartz.  It was originally discovered in 1986 in the Magaliesberg Mountain Range near Pretoria, South Africa, and given the name "Spirit Quartz" because tribal medicine men used it in healing rituals.

The Spirit Quartz specimens on this page are from South Africa.
