ID: CC19764
From Gletschhorn in the Furka pass area of Urseren, Switzerland, a locality known for its excellent Smoky Quartz, this single, ex-matrix crystal is a very fine example.  Hexagonal in cross-section, with long, equant prism faces and a skewed, asymmetric termination of Dauphiné habit , the Quartz crystal is uniformly smoky, but of a delicate pale sherry.  The crystal is almost perfectly transparent save for internal wisps and feathered flaws near to the termination.  The prism section is close to optically perfect, allowing the finest print to be read through the body.  The tip of the termination is also perfect.  A splendid example of Smoky Quartz from Gletschhorn in Switzerland.
