Item Description

A striking and beautiful, absolutely water-clear smoky quartz crystal with fine, rich smoky color from this noted Italian locale and the Bonisoli Collection # 5948. All of the sharp faces on the nifty complex termination are lightly frosted/etched and are embedded with sparkly micro chlorite crystals. The side faces remain stunningly water-clear. The termination is pristine on this fine complete all-around crystal, which has only a trivial bit of out of sight edgewear on the back. A very fine smoky from this famous locale. MUCH, MUCH BETTER IN PERSON!!
