Description

A fine sample of Smoky Quartz from the easter part of the alps. Smokys usually come from Switzerland or France, in eastern alps they are more the exception. The particular specimen shows thin intergrown crystals with sharp termination and wonderful texture. Also the colour is very nice for austrian alps, nearly as dark as his cousins from Switzerland.
