ID: CC10193
A superb, ex-matrix, single crystal of Smoky Quartz from the Grimsel area in Hasli Valley, Bern, Switzerland.  At one side of the base, the initial 2.3 cm is partly included with opaque chloritic granular Quartz and milky Quartz, remnants of the former matrix. At the opposite side, one prism face extends to the full length of the specimen.   Apart from the odd hair-like internal filament, the crystal is perfectly transparent and of a completely uniform mid-clove brown.
