Scepterquartz is by far the most desired form of this species in the Swiss alps, and this is a really great one with a well defined and sharp shaft and superbly formed Scepter atop. The gemmy crystals are mirror bright and super striated. This specimen has definitely high quality, even for the locality of Val d´Illiez near Monthey in Valais, the well known locality for "Fensterquartzes". Just a mini, but what one, with great aesthetic overall impressions. This is definitely a killer piece and such items are extremely hard to obtain nowadays.
