Quartz (Var: Smoky Quartz), Microcline (Var: Amazonite)
Florissant Area, Teller Co., Colorado, USA
Small Cabinet, 8.8 x 7.0 x 5.0 cm
A superb and classic smoky quartz and amazonite specimen from the Florissant area of Colorado. This fine, unrepaired piece is dominated by a superbly placed 5.0 cm, translucent, smoky quartz crystal that has a low-luster finish. The two smaller smoky quartzes and the turquoise-blue amazonite crystals wonderfully complete this very fine piece. The large smoky quartz is complete all-around and is very nearly pristine. Ex. Peter Bancroft Collection.
