Smokey Quartz on Microcline and Albite
stock #18.1-616
Moat Mt., North Conway
New Hampshire, United States
8.6 x 5. x 5.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $750
Dec 2018

Super well composed, a rare classic Northeastern USA specimen collected by the late Ernie Schlichter decades ago. All the Smokey quartz is in perfect parallel=position and very lustrous, being fully translucent to transparent. The Feldspars are a fine "baby blue- green" hue which has always been the most desirable but also the most uncommon from Moat Mt. The specimen seen from the front is in fine shape but the back is contacted and a single small chip is on a the side of the largest Quartz, not seen from the logical display angles. Far better in person there were only a few pockets found with this quality and this was kept by Ernie for his collection. The specimen is sawn on the base from when it was collected, as a result it sits at a perfect display angle. Choice and a quality not seen on the market..
