- Smoky Quartz Castle With Albite and Mica
- Large Cabinet, 25.6 x 14.0 x 12.2 cm
- Taquaral, Minas Gerais, Brazil
A dramatic, complete all-around, tower of crenellated smoky quartz perched centrally on and impaling a matrix of albite and smaller quartz! The quartz is actually doubly-terminated, though you'd want to stand it on the bottom termination in a base (provided inclusive). The brilliance and luster of the specimen are superb, and top quality. It is complete all around and, if you have a showcase deep enough, makes a very visual impact between the combintaion of gemminess and form.
