A beautiful and almost pristine Smoky Quartz specimen from famous alpine locale Göscheneralp of Uri canton in Switzeraland. The single crystals here are razor sharp and mirror bright with great smoky-brown colour and excellent gemminess. There are just minor included fissures at the backside, what doesn´t detract from the overall aesthetics. This kind of specimens are not just a "byproduct of mining activities". The local Strahlers take on strenous high alpine mountain tours and often risk their live to collect them.
