Item Description

An impressive CABINET smoky quartz specimen from this noted Italian locale and the Bonisoli Collection. The crystals have fine, dark smoky color. The striking large smoky is 8.0 cm and is doubly terminated. Most crystal faces are lightly frosted/etched, but one side face of the large smoky is stunningly water-clear, showing the interior "garden effect". Complete all-around. The back is contacted, but has very little damage, per se. The back of the tip of the large smoky is lightly bruised and minor periphery wear is note at the bottom of the piece. A very fine and aesthetic smoky from this famous locale. MUCH, MUCH BETTER IN PERSON!!
