Before I continue including crystals from Namibia, I will include the last quartz that I have got. It is an Ajoite in Quartz from Messina Mine, Messina District, Limpopo Province, South Africa. 1982.

Perfect clarity in a Quartz from the McEarl mine. 1982.

Terri Coleman, owner of the mine with Jim Coleman, described me the discovery with this words:
"It was mined in 1982. There were only 2 pockets, 1 in 1982 and 1 in 1986, every found. We still owe the mine and will return to it when it feels right.
It was allsome, it was like diamonds glittering in the red clay. It felt like we had hit the glory hole, and we did !!!"

Thanks, Bob. Transparency of crystals is to me one of the most impressive manifestations of the nature.
Next example of clarity in quartz is this Citrine Quartz from Minas Geraes, Brazil.

Very nice, again!

And I sure am glad you aren't asking us to give the proper botanic species names to all the items in the "matrix" ;)

Cheers, Gerhard

Thanks, Gerhard!
You has had a very good idea... Maybe, in the future I will ask for the proper botanic species names... I must think about it...
The plants combine very good with the quartz.
