RM1151   Smoky quartz

Pointe des Periades, Glacier de Leschaux, Massif du Mont Blanc, Chamonix, Haute-Savoie, Rhône-Alpes, France

In this floater specimen we can observe a group of quartz crystals, two of them clearly dominant, with well defined faces and edges. We see a well-developed prism with rhombohedral terminal and trapezohedron faces. Transparence and brilliance are both excellent and with a very uniform smoky tone.

Size: 6.2 x 4.7 x 4.3 cm.
Main crystal: 35 x 28 mm.
Found in 2014.
