For sale is a group of smoky quartz crystals from Pine Ridge near Copeton Dam, NSW. This is a handsome group of lusterous, sharply terminated smoky quartz crystals nicely accented by the laying flat form, a bit unusual. Good transparency, great form, choice material. A trivial bit of bruising is noted, but is certainly only a modest detraction to this excellent and aesthetic smoky.
