Smoky Quartz with Biotite on Albite
Biotite, Smoky Quartz
Tawara , Hirukawa, Nakatsugawa City, Gifu Prefecture, Chubu Region, Honshu Island, Japan
A wonderful smoky quartz with biotite and feldspar from Tawara, Hirukawa, Nakatsugawa City, Gifu Prefecture, Chubu Region, Honshu Island, Japan! This specimen features two, dark black smoky quartz crystals that have formed together withe a book of biotite mica and a bit of feldspar matrix to form this aesthetic specimen. The smoky has overgrowths of white quartz that really adds to the contrast of color and the aesthetics of the piece. Japanese specimens are rare, and this one is an exquisite miniature. No significant damage. From my personal quartz collection.
