Smokey Quartzoid Cluster - 1.301kg, 15cm x 12cm
This crystals on this rare specimen of natural color smoky quartz are so dark that most of them appear to be black. They show good vitreous luster on most of its multiple parallel and stepped pyramidal terminations which are mostly in very good condition with some abraded areas. This naturally terminated smoky quartz specimen has 4-sided terminations standing up from the matrix, but it is actually a double-ended (bi-terminated) bi-pyramid with no prismatic faces. The c-axis is parallel to the matrix surface so the "4-sided terminations" standing up from the matrix are actually the juncture of the terminations of the two 6-sided pyramids. The mineralogical term for this bi-pyrimidal form without prismatic faces is "quartzoid". This is a great specimen to fool a geologist with at first glance, since the form of the quartz's 4-sided crystal "tips" look more like black flourite crystals!
