Item Description

From the storied Goboboseb Mountains in Namibia, this is an OUTSTANDING combination specimen with two varieties of quartz on one piece. The centerpiece is a lustrous and gemmy Smoky Quartz scepter that is 3.4 cm tall. It rises majestically from a matrix of sharp Quartz crystals intergrown with mint-green Prehnite. These Quartz crystals, up to 2.2 cm with some being doubly-terminated, are beautifully-formed and gemmy. Even without the Smoky, this combination would be a fine Namibian specimen - representative but not particularly valuable. The scepter takes this piece to a higher level of aesthetics, rarity, and quality.
