Item Description

Exceptional combination piece of unusual, and very attractive, stark white Orthoclase crystals intergrown with gemmy Smoky Quartz and Schorl needles. All on granite, with a small amount of Hyalite Opal as a bonus: an incredible fluorescent accent. The Orthoclase crystals are tabular, with the largest ones being 3.5 cm, and twinned! The gemmy Smokies are more on the order of 1 cm, as are the Schorls. I've not quite seen the likes of this specimen before. It is a great piece from a famous location, but more than that it is just unusual from anywhere, in its overall aspect, and at any price
