A large table-cut Quartz cabochon with golden Goethite inclusions from Brazil.

The "organ-pipe" shaped crystals of Goethite are aligned along a band of pale yellow Citrine Quartz which runs across the length of the gem, with another thinner line visible lower in the stone.

Images 4 and 5 are magnified views of the highly textured inclusions.

The portion of the stone in which the Goethite lies is a very pale purple colour and can be considered as Amethyst.
The remainder of the specimen is almost colourless, with a few liquid inclusions visible.
