A big, gorgeous, complex crystal of Smoky Quartz with a pair of smaller crystals from Brazil and a fun bubble within. The faces have a superb, glassy luster, and the Quartz is quite gemmy witch with a rich and deep smoky hue. The main crystal measures 6.5 cm tall and 5 cm in width with superb form and is somewhat 'Herkimer-like'. Close inspection (along with an arrow) reveals an enhydro, or air bubble, in liquid within the crystals that measures 1.3 cm and can be easily followed when moving the crystal about. The other two crystals, which are a bit lighter in hue, are 5 and 5 cm in length, respectively. There are a few other smaller Quartz crystals associated with these two Quartzes as well. Phantoms are obvious in the large crystal and not so apparent in the others. The piece has exceptional glassy luster and super sharp edges with pointed, undamaged terminations. This is a gorgeous pegmatitic Smoky Quartz from Brazil.
