Phantom Quartz is created when the levels and mineral content

of the space in which they formed changed over time.

Each phase of development left a unique, sometimes ghostly, imprint within the crystal.  Dustings of Chalcedony, Chlorite and inclusions of Amphibole, Rutile 

and other variations provide endless, timeless elements of fascination. 

Studio Mineralia has amassed an astonishing collection of exceptional aesthetic

phantoms and are happy to release these beautiful and inspiring examples of the

Earth's art to the world as The Phantom Collection.

All video associated with the pieces will remain online to assist in the purchasers future exploration.
