* Phantom quartz is a variety of quartz, or "rock crystal", that forms over pre-existing crystals. The included crystal is visible due to some variation in composition making the boundary of the included crystal visible. Such crystals display the outlines of numerous smaller crystals, known as phantoms. A Phantom is a crystal or mineral deposit within a crystal. While the color of Phantoms will vary from crystal to crystal, depending upon the type of mineral of which they are made, Phantoms look like the “ghost” of a crystal within another crystal. Phantoms are formed when the growth of a crystal has been interrupted and then begins to grow again. Often, the original mineral gets washed away, leaving only the Quartz to grow afterwards. Quartz Phantoms are symbolic of universal awareness and the many phases of the cycle of life.
