Smoky Quartz with Shale phantoms
McEarl Mine, USA
McEarl Mine, Blue Springs, Garland Co., Arkansas, USA
A stunning, gem-quality smoky quartz crystal with shale inclusions and phantoms from a pocket discovered in the early 1980s, at the McEarl Mine, in Garland Co., Arkansas, USA! This large, single gem quartz is of the utmost quality, with incredible internal clarity and extremely high, wet luster. The inclusions are unusual for the McEarl, as is the smoky – most quartz from this locality are gem clear. The crystal has had minor restoration to two edges (tip is good), as well as a fracture-fill. From my personal quartz collection. Comes with a custom acrylic base.
