This specimen consists of a large, well-formed light smoky quartz crystal thrusting up from a matrix of albite and muscovite mica. There is one small chip out of the side of this specimen, and small inclusions of foreign material give the tip a frosted appearance in spots. The smoky quartz crystal is 4.6" in length (11.7cm). Several small internal fractures lend this specimen character. The muscovite on the base shows relatively good form; one of these "books" reaches 3" in diameter (7.6 cm).
