OKB-006 Quartz Scepters Washington Camp, Arizona. I have seen crate after crate of poor specimens from this site. Here is one of the best I have seen. It is 9 x 8 cm plate of scepters to over 4 cm each. They stand off of and lay sideways at various angle creating a nice display. Stems are horizontally striated and milky while the caps are clear. There is still some cleaning needed mud stains remain on some of the stems. Some damage to points at edges where it shoud be expected but central points are fine. Excellent example. 110$
