Quartz
These XX - edge up to 1.3cm - are a sort of dark amethist; I prefere to classify the specimen as "Iron quartz", since I doubt It could be properly amethist. The quartz XX are a 2nd generation, since it is evident, on the back, the sign of some 1st generation quartz XX tips. There are thin plates of baryte amongst the Quartz XX
