Beautiful, gemmy smoky quartz matrix specimen with bubbles


Measurements:  45 x 44 x 29 mm

Description:  A beautiful, gemmy, smoky window quartz crystal, on a matrix of feldspar and quartz. The windows are beautiful, with clearly visible feldspar entrapments inside.

There is a good sized moving bubble (about 2 mm in diameter), as well as a very small moving bubble, and a very small, still bubble visible through three adjoining facets.

This is really a lovely specimen with high clarity!
