Quartz (Var: Smoky Quartz)
Pikes Peak, Teller Co., Colorado, USA
Large Cabinet, 18.9 x 5.4 x 4.8 cm
This is a huge single compound crystal of Colorado smoky quartz, a doubly-terminated floater. The side faces, which have good luster, are really interesting in that this is a compound crystal with inter-penetrating forms. Ex. Richard Hauck and Earl Calvert Collections.
