Quartz, var. Smoky Quartz

Specimen # 102616
Mineral: Quartz, var. Smoky Quartz
Location: Black Cap Mountain, North Conway, Conway, Carroll Co., New Hampshire, USA
Size: 10.0 x 7.7 x 6.0 cm


A fantastic quality New Hampshire smoky quartz from Black Cap Mountain, the crystals are actually very faintly amethystine. This piece is from the Ernie Schlichter collection and since then it has resided in my own personal collection. It is in excellent condition! A small nick to the back of the smaller side-car crystal (not seen as displayed) and the termination of the larger crystal is undamaged. Contacting beneath and behind is of geological age, exhibiting recrystallization patterns. Stands perfectly for display – a superb New England classic!
