Description: A light smoky quartz specimen with interesting faces and a few terminations and rutile needles inside.
The termination points have no notable damage. The top display side has very little damage, and a flaw (typical of specimens from this area).
The specimen grew in a horizontal position, so the bottom was damaged when we removed it. The orangy patch was caused by iron oxide.
