Here is a rare specimen of slightly lustrous smoky quartz that has been given the name "dogtooth quartz" because the tapered crystals look like the canine teeth of a dog. This double terminated, double-tapered crystal starts fat in the middle and becomes smaller and smaller going toward each tip. At both ends it culminates in points that have miniature versions of the usual pyramidal termination of a quartz crystal. The color is a light smoky color with a touch of yellowish gray. There is no distracting damage to this rare form of quartz. There are several blobs of white cleavelandite crystals perched on the side, and a nice little sidecar crystal of smoky quartz as well.
