Item Description

A striking and excellent, complexly terminated smoky quartz crystal from the Bonisoli Collection. The water-clear crystal has rich smoky color and super glassy luster. The sidecar crystal cluster adds character. The backside of the complete all-around crystal is preferentially etched/pitted and really gives a scintillating, unusual look to the piece. Very nearly pristine, with only trivial termination wear and a trivial amount of sidewear, but with no damage, per se. A very fine smoky from Italy with a dramatic termination.
