RM682   Smoky Quartz

Talèfre glacier, Mont Blanc Mts., Chamonix, Haute-Savoie, Rhône-Alpes, France

In this specimen we can observe a group of quartz crystals, one of them dominant, with well defined faces and edges. We see a well-developed prism with rhombohedral terminal faces and a possible small trapezohedron face. Transparence and brilliance are both excellent and with a very uniform smoky tone. It is not easy to find specimens of alpine smoky quartz at reasonable prices, without nicks, and less with this size.


Size: 9,2 x 9,0 x 6,0 cm.
Main crystal: 6,8 x 4,3 cm.
Found in 2012.
