An aesthetic and sculptural old-time crystal of , glassy, sharply terminated gem smoky quartz with fine phantoms. From Torrington NSW, showing the classic parallel growth quartz the region is famed for. Complete all-around, all upright crystals, and in great shape. A trivial bit of termination wear when the crystal touched the pocket wall during growth, is noted, but it is certainly a minimal detraction to this fine old classic. Ex Paul Hayes collection. Sits perfectly on natural base, specimen of Australian smoky (with just a hint of citrine) of this quality are today very difficult to obtain!!
