A single Smoky Quartz prism comprises this thumbnail specimen. It is in excellent condtion, showing only a small amount of damage on its termination, and has excellent hexagonal prismatic form, with well-define edges and clean faces that possess the standard vitreous luster. Its brown color is rather dark for its small size, and it is transparent and very clear, though it does contain a few veil-like inclusions and internal fractures. There is no host rock present.
