Here is real rarity out of the collection of Ed David, a true prize for a quartz collector as a really unique quartz. For one thing - have you ever seen a large quartz with the rare ROSE hue AND smoky? Well this one has it! you have this extremely large anchor smoky crystal, with big, smooth, flat faces, that forms the "center" of the specimen, with the smaller crystals forming a sort of garland around it. It is complete all the way around, too. It is just a striking piece for the color contrast but more than that, it's world class as a quartz.
