New Quartz ‘Wand’ For My Mineral Collection

A gift, this quartz ‘wand’ is 6″ x 1″ x 3/4″ (152mm x 25mm x 19mm). My daughter immediately picked it up, made some underhand Harry Potter move with it and abruptly vanished. I left a text with her brother to call me ASAP re:reversal.

Notice this crystal is more brownish or yellow on the right side. Hard to see in my poor pics but the thick end is slightly more violet or amethyst in color.
