This is a large, wonderfully three-dimensional specimen of elestial smoky quartz from Brazil, with parallel-growth faces all the way around. These faces are smooth, and reflect the light in a dazzling display when the specimen is turned. The crystals are mostly clear, with darkly smoky edges, and all faces of the crystal are highly lustrous. The raised crystal faces look like the lumps on the back of an alligator, hence the name jacare, which is Portuguese for alligator. Really fine jacare specimens like this one are rare and desirable. I acquired this superb piece from a wholesale dealer on my 2016 trip to Brazil.
