A cluster of relatively large Smoky Quartz crystals The color looks quite dark until the specimen is held close to a light source which reveals the Quartz is a light smoky brown color. There is a thin coating of unidentified substance on one side of many of the crystals which varies from gray/green to reddish brown (perhaps partially oxidized Chlorite). This coating causes the color of the Quartz to appear darker. The crystals are well formed with glossy surfaces. Most of the crystals exhibit a curved surface just below the bottom of the faces of the terminations.

Condition: Good

Flaws: One of the edges of the termination of the largest crystal has a conchoidal fracture measuring 1.7 x 0.5 cm.
