I guess that quartzes from the Alps are favourites for many quartz collectors. I really love alpine quartzes, so this one is definitely one of my personal all-time favourites:

This is from the book by Harold L. Dibble, Quartz." Cathedral Quartz. One of the most common of these types is known as Cathedral quartz. These are crystals with the axes of the secondary crystals parallel to those of the main crystal. These clusters vaguely resemble smaller spires or buttresses around the main spire of a cathedral." More of a descriptive term than a scientific one. I guess everything has to be called something.

Do you know what causes that?
