Item Description

First-rate cluster of three parallel, intergrown Smoky Quartz crystals from Fresno County, California. The luster is superb, and the deep, brownish-black color is quite uniform, adding to the attractive aesthetic. #215 in Kay's collection (acquired 1960), the original hand-written label mentions a now-defunt locality called Huntington Lake. The small amount of preferential etching is highly indicative of these deeply-colored Fresno County Smokies.
