Description: A cluster of light smoky quartz crystals, with most having phantoms, some of which are partially exposed. There are bits of feldspar attached.
The termination points have only minute nicks, with the rest of the specimen has a few nicks and flaws, typical of specimens from this area.
We add an extra (double terminated) crystal to it (image top right), which was part of the original specimen, but came loose after we'd mined it.
