ID: CC16859
A magnificent off-matrix Smoky Quartz crystal with large and lustrous crystal faces from the Rostowrack China Clay Pit at Hendra Downs, St Dennis, Cornwall, collected in May 1978.  The colour of the crystal is an intense very dark smoky-brown, almost tending to black morion, but not quite there.  Neglecting the paler root of the crystal, the actual smoky termination is between 4.0 to 4.5 cm high. The very tip and a 2 mm section on one face edge are slightly bruised, but these imperfections are almost invisible unless magnified.  A superb china clay country Smoky Quartz.
