Unique new find from South India. Red phantom quartz is a captivating variety of quartz known for its distinctive red-colored phantom inclusions. Phantom quartz occurs when a crystal grows in layers, and a mineral deposit interrupts the growth, creating a "phantom" appearance within the crystal. The red coloration in red phantom quartz is typically caused by inclusions of iron oxide or hematite.  Some may include black inclusions of hematite.
