I love the way the light flashes off of dozens of perfectly parallel faces on this very choice smoky elestial (jacaré) quartz crystal. As you turn it in the light, each side suddenly bursts forth with blazing hot spots bouncing off the multiple glassy faces on the crystal. The back side is rehealed, and there is no damage on the specimen. Each embedded crystal is highlighted by edges of smoky quartz, nicely breaking up the planes of the crystal. This is a highly aesthetic and very appealing quartz crystal, and will be a bright spot in anyone's collection.

Here's an excellent specimen, a shining cluster of ELESTIAL SMOKY QUARTZ crystals from the Macao Mine, Sao Geraldo do Baixio, Minas Gerais, Brazil. Each crystal is brilliantly reflective, showing off the mirror-bright parallel faces of the elestial formation. (Brazilian miners give this the name jacaré because it looks like the shiny bumps on the back of a crocodile; the Portuguese word for alligator is jacaré.) We purchased this specimen at the Tucson Gem Rock and Mineral Show from the stock of one of the many Brazilian wholesale dealers.
