A showy and excellent, mounded, combination specimen from recent finds in Argentina. Glassy, nearly transparent, smoky quartz crystals are very attractively scattered amongst cream-colored microcline crystals. The nifty, perched smoky atop the mound is 2.3 cm. The scattered bruising is a modest detraction. Highly representative of the species and locale.
