A really interesting looking, OLD-TIME specimen from the very well-named Devils Head area of Colorado. Five, sharp, lustrous, nearly transparent, smoky quartz crytals to 3.0 cm are aesthetically attached to the sides, like sentinels, of a sharp, microcline "mountain peak" crystal. The minor amount of termination wear on the smokies has very minimal impact on the overall quality of this very showy piece from a CLASSIC Colorado locale. Ex Richard Hauck Quartz Collection.
