This intriguing hand specimen consists of a single crystal of "elestial" Smoky Quartz that is in excellent condition. The crystal may actually consist of two or more crystals that grew together, but a single, large termination comprises one end. The other end is made up of several smaller terminations, all of which are complete. Many of the faces and edges are naturally pitted and uneven due to the evidently bizarre growing conditions. Its color is also odd, in that the single, large termination has a moderate brown color that quickly fades to colorless halfway towards the opposing terminations. It has a vitreous luster and is transparent and dimly clear due to many air bubbles and geometrically-arranged solid inclusions. There is no host rock of any sort present.
