Item Description

I really like the aesthetics of this cute Mt. Malosa, Malawi combination miniature. A 3.3 cm, highly lustrous, black aegirine "needle" is beautifully attached to the sides of two, glassy, parallel-growth, smoky quartz crystals. The striking, pristine, 3.2 cm smoky is doubly terminated and has gorgeous, darker terminations. The smaller smoky has a broken termination, but is certainly nothing to detraction, as you can see. A very showy combo piece.
