A cluster of 2 or 3 Smoky Quartz crystals makes up this hand specimen. These crystals reach lengths of 1.3" (3.3 cm) and are in good condition, showing minor damage at their termination tips. Both have excellent hexagonal prismatic form with some evidence of intergrowth. Their surfaces have a dull, nearly matte luster and they are transparent and clear enough so that one can see the phantom zonation of their brown color. Both partial and complete microcline "amazonite" and albite crystals are gathered around its base, making up the base material.
