Item Description

A showy and excellent smoky/amethyst quartz crystal from recent finds in the famous Goboboseb Mountains. This dramatic piece is super glassy and totally water-clear. The two terminations, unusual form, skeletal features, shading variations of the smoky color with subtle amethyst hints and clay inclusions are supremely noteworthy. Every turn of this sharp, pseudohexagonal crystal presents an entirely different perspective of the outside and interior of this stunning crystal. Complete all-around, the super trivial termination wear to one of the two terminations and the contacting at the base are noted, but are modest detractions. Highly representative for the species and locale.
