ID: CC20522
This terrific Quartz Gwindel from the St. Gotthard Massif in Switzerland is a fabulous example, not just because of its obvious Gwindel morphology, but also its uniform smokiness and gemmy transparency.  The overall width of the Gwindel itself is a little over 5 cm and, attached to this at one side, is a single terminated Quartz crystal of the same colour and displaying characteristic alternating large ‘r’ and small ‘z’ termination faces.  A beautiful example with an amazing glassy bright lustre.
