An EXCELLENT, twisted, smoky quartz gwindel with outstanding smoky color and gemminess from Switzerland. The front is very nearly pristine, with only a trivial bruise/contact near the top, on this very glassy crystal. The crystal is nearly complete all-around, has classic gwindel morphology and the contact on the back is out of sight. The backlit photo highlights the gemminess and beautiful smoky color saturation. Ex Harvard and Richard Hauck Quartz Collections. Probably around 100 years old, judging by the Harvard label. Valued at $1000.
