Quartz, var. Smoky Quartz (Sceptre)

Specimen # 201097
Mineral: Quartz, var. Smoky Quartz (Sceptre)
Location: Petersen Mountain, Hallelujah Junction Area, Washoe Co., Nevada, USA
Size: 8.6 x 2.7 x 2.0 cm


A smoky quartz sceptre from the John S. White quartz collection – he acquired it from Neil Prenn. The sceptre is prominent and relatively uniform (each prism and pyramid face being fairly equant), making it quite a striking, aesthetic piece. In excellent condition – a small contact just below the tip on the backside and another on the back. This is a truly beautiful sceptre!
