Light smoky quartz crystal sitting on a quartz plate

Description:  A light smoky quartz crystal sits on a quartz plate, along with a few other small quartz crystals and bits of feldspar. 

The termination point has only a few extremely minute nicks (barely visible with the naked eye), while the rest of the crystal has a few small nicks and flaws, typical of specimens from this area. 

The bottom of the specimen is also crystallized (image bottom left). The lovely rainbows on some surfaces are caused by a coating of iron oxide.
