Black phantom Quartz is a silicon dioxide mineral with a hardness of 7. Its crystal system is hexagonal (trigonal). It grows in prismatic crystals, like many varieties of Quartz. Black Phantom Quartz is characterized by ‘phantom’ inclusions of carbon or manganese, often echoing within the body of the crystal the form of a termination point from an earlier stage of the crystal’s growth. Some of the best specimens of Black Phantom Quartz are found in Arkansas, USA.
