Tessin quartz is a rare form of quartz that is characterized by tapered crystals that end in small terminations. The taper on these crystals is so dramatic that they were given the name "dogtooth quartz", due to their resemblance to a dog's canine teeth. The color of the largest crystal is light smoky, with a slightly yellow tint, and the terminations are sharp and damage free. The sides of the crystals have horizontal striations. There is no damage on this highly sculptural and dramatic specimen.
