From a very recent find of a previously unknown combination - crystals of gem Triphylite in Quartz. We selected this example for the aesthetic placement of the crystals as well as there form and overall distribution. The contrast is lovely with the completely colorless and clean Quartz. Triphylite is a color change material and it is possible to induce the classic change to a brownish-red color with a strong incandescent light. A fun and quite lovely inclusion gem.
