Girasol Quartz Spheres

Girasol quartz is a lovely milky-silky crystal who’s unique appearance is attributed to a number of microscopic inclusions including aluminum, Dumortierite, rutile and even micro-bubbles. I have been unable to find any lab backed evidence of water bubbles in these stones but some do claim it.
Girasol quartz is found in Brazil and Madagascar and should not be confused with the opals they share a name with.
Please note that crystals and stones are natural products and are rarely perfect. Carved crystals are individual works of art and will also bear the marks of their lapidary artisans, please appreciate the unique details of items made by hand.
