Quartz, var. Smoky Quartz (Sceptre)

Specimen # 201096
Mineral: Quartz, var. Smoky Quartz (Sceptre)
Location: Petersen Mountain, Hallelujah Junction Area, Washoe Co., Nevada, USA
Size: 5.6 x 3.6 x 1.9 cm


A smoky quartz sceptre from the John S. White quartz collection – he personally collected this piece in May, 2014. The crystal is naturally incomplete, having split from the rest before mineral development was complete -the backside shows crystallization surfaces and other tiny crystals, so there wasn’t more of this specimen than John collected. In excellent condition. The contrast on this one is really nice. A sweet John White quartz.
