This specimen consists of one hexagonal prismatic Smoky Quartz crystal. It is very large and has excellent form, with only a few minor spots of human-induced damage. It has a pale brown color and the standard vitreous luster of quartz. Though it contains several internal fractures and cloudy inclusions, it is transparent and shows large areas of excellent clarity. The prism and termination faces have large striations and complex growth patterns on them that are quite intriguing. There are a few large areas of damage on the crystal that show definite partial healing, as they occurred near the end of the crystal's formation. This crystal is in uncommonly good condition for its size!
