A translucent, light smoky quartz crystal hosts a scattering of tourmaline and minor feldspar. The quartz termination is pristine. Along the back is a large, slightly curved impression, probably of a large tourmaline crystal. The tourmalines which are present are generally rather thin and light olive grey green in color. The most significant tourmaline measures 1.3 cm, with its termination rising above the edge of the quartz. Overall condition is very nice.
