ID: CC3820
A superb terminated specimen of Smoky Quartz crystals in parallel growth from the Goboboseb Mountains in Namibia.  Crystals of Smoky Quartz measure to 8 cm tall with excellent sharp terminations. The crystals have opaque milky white bases which rapidly turn to gemmy Smoky prisms, displaying their internal growth zones to advantage with inclusions of a light coloured clay. At least one of the internal cavities has a movable bubble, which is too small for us to photograph.  This is a beautiful and very fine cabinet specimen of partly hoppered Smoky Quartz from this classic location within interbedded basalts and quartz latites.
