Mineral: Quartz, var. Smoky Quartz

This is a complex-growth specimen from the John S. White quartz collection – he personally collected it in May, 2014. It is a parallel group of crystals, primarily smoky, but lightly amethystine as well, at the upper terminations. These crystals are sharp the overall form is unique. In excellent condition. A very cool specimen with a great history.
