This is a string of quartz crystals in the growth habit called a "faden". If you look carefully, you can see the faden line that runs through the central portion of the crystals. Additionally, the quartz crystals from this locality have an orangey tinge because of a light dusting of iron oxides just below the surface of the faces of the crystals. Nice Example!
