This beautiful Quartz Speciment is from the North American Emerald Mine (NAEM), formerly known as the Rist Mine, in North Carolina. It is rare to find pieces of this quality from this area! When the light hits this pieces just right you can see a layer of iridescent iron oxides on some of the sides of the Quartz! (You can see this better in person, I had a hard time capturing it with the camera.) This piece has a hint of yellow to it, also iron oxides. There is a little bit of Black Tourmaline and even some Mica! This piece of Quartz is completely natural!
