Smoky Quartz (Gwindel)
Small Cabinet, 8.2 x 6.1 x 2.7 cm
Grischun (Grisons; Graubunden), Switzerland

If you ever wanted a dramatic smoky Swiss gwindel, this is your chance to get a large piece showing the dramatic twist, and with good smoky color, at a fair price. The piece would be a $2500 specimen if I had a firm locality for it (and I am told it is probably from Graubunden area). And it has a few slight dings on two little tips upon one edge which as you see in the pics are not visually detracting in any case. It DOES have gemminess, color, and twist, plus a brilliant internal sparkle to it that is very desirable in this material.
