Ex. Chuck Houser
An EXCELLENT, very SHOWY, FLOATER combination specimen from the less well-known Blue Lady Mine of San Diego County, California. A lustrous and glassy, doubly terminated smoky quartz crystal is very attractively studded with lustrous, schorl crystals to 4.9 cm. This very FINE piece is nearly pristine, with only one broken schorl crystal on the side and a trivial termination bruise on the smoky. This piece has many display possibilities, as you can see. Ex Chuck Houser Collection. 6.4 x 6.0 x 4.9 cm
