Quartz (Var: Smoky Quartz)
Lake George, Park Co., Colorado, USA
Small Cabinet, 6.9 x 4.1 x 3.1 cm
A wonderful, sharp, very well formed, euhedral, dark Smoky Quartz crystal with semi-lustrous faces. There is a spot on the back of the crystal where it was clearly attached to the pocket wall, and has left a resulting scar, but it cannot be seen from the display side. Some minor beige/pink Microcline crystals at the base of the crystal make for a nice accent. A good representative specimen from this classic pegmatite district in Colorado. Ex. Brian Kosnar Collection.
