Item Description

Outstanding specimen of Smoky Quartz from Winterstock in the Swiss Alps. This piece is basically a two-for-one bonus: there is a highly desirible Gwindel sitting on top of a doubly-terminated Smoky (a rare combination), and both are absolutely gem clear! So gemmy, in fact, that the only way to actually show you just how clear was to simply take a shot through it. The piece is a near floater, with just one small attachment point. The condition is excellent, with just some dinging on the terminations of the lower crystal. That wear is hardly noticeable with the focus justifiably on the fabulous aesthetics of the Gwindel. #699 in Kay's collection, she acquired this over a half-century ago, and I'm sure she was thrilled to get it.
