A big, gorgeous, complex crystal of Smoky Quartz from Brazil. The faces have a superb, glassy luster, and the Quartz is quite gemmy with internal crazing near the core. This crystal has superb form, and is very 'Herkimer-like'. It is contacted along the bottom, of course. Perhaps the finest aspect of this crystal, in addition to the great luster and gemminess, is the three-pointed termination, which is exceptional in every way. It is almost mind-blowing how aesthetic this particular crystal is, and the condition is excellent. The actual specimen is much better than the pics indicate.
