Description

A wonderful sample of Smoky Quartz from Austrian Alps - usually we have rock crystals in Austria, smokies come from Switzeralnd but not from Eastern Alps. This specimen shows warm red-brown color like his cousins from switzerland, the main crystal is double terminated and very glossy and set on small matrix. Framed with several smaller crystals in same high quality. The end points are powdered with minor chlorite, which give even more contrast to this superb specimen. No significant damages to report.
