Quartz (Var: Smoky Quartz)
Florissant (Topaz Butte), Crystal Peak area, Teller Co., Colorado, USA
Small Cabinet, 7.3 x 2.5 x 2.1 cm
An old-time, rare, doubly terminated, floater, smoky quartz crystal from near Florissant, Colorado. This lustrous, pristine, complete all-around crystal is transparent and is very well striated. I particularly like the shape and single and multiple terminations. Certainly around 100 years old. Ex. Richard Hauck Collection.
