Item Description

A PRISTINE, super impressive, complete all-around, CABINET smoky quartz crystal from the Richard Hauck Quartz Collection. This superb, gemmy giant is water-clear and has beautiful, intense smoky color. The stepped-growth patterns on all sides, near the termination, are facinating and add lots of character. This is certainly one of the better Brazilian single smokies, that I have ever seen and it comes from a MUCH LESS well-known locale - Sao Cristobal. The base is contacted, but has no damage, per se. Older material. An OUTSTANDING Brazilian smoky. Swiss quality from Brazil! 452 grams or 15.9 ounces, nearly a pound. Richard Hauck valued this beauty at $1500.
