A faceted Quartz gemstone from Madagascar with golden fronds of Goethite.

The gem is parti-coloured, mostly being colourless but with a hint of purple Amethyst and holds five radiating clusters of golden-yellow Goethite arranged in a parallel growth plane.

These attractive inclusions, shown in magnified image 5, are sometimes referred to as 'Cacoxenite' by gemstone enthusiasts, although Goethite is a more accurate description.
