The Brushy Mountain, aka Mule Creek, quartz crystal area is located on the Arizona-New Mexico border in Grant County, New Mexico. The quartz crystals formed in cavities in a rhyolite rock. Most of the crystals are small (1-8 cm on average), and rather heavily included, but they are typically a light amethystine color and display unusual crystal shapes. Many of the crystals are scepters with skeletal habit. The above specimen is a nice sharp crystal point of light amethystine color. (#M451 is priced at $2.00)
