Clear doubly terminated smoky quartz crystals on matrix. On the back side of the specimen, also fully crystallized, smoky quartz is associated by a pale green byssolite (amianth), a fibrous variety of actinolite. Back termination of the larger smoky quartz is covered by small adularia crystals. The smoky quartz is completely transparent with visible inclusions from the host rock. The trapezoherdal face on the larger crystal and sutures indicate a right Dauphinee twinned quartz of Friedländer habitus.
