A Pala District classic! A group of quartz crystals, rendered translucent to opaque by inclusions of pinkish montmorillonite clay. On one face the quartz  crystal sharp is sharp and distinct, while the other side is cavernous and concave. I suspect the quartz grew over a mound of some other mineral (perhaps montmorillonite) which is now absent. No damage.
