From: Smoky Hawk Mine (Old Man Rock), Florissant, Teller Co., Colorado, USA
Size: 6.0 x 8.6 x 5.2cm
This is a rather old Amazonite & Smoky Quartz combo from what is now the famous Smoky Hawk Mine in Colorado. The specimen was collected by Ray Berry on October 8, 1998 when the mine was called "Old Man Rock". It remained in the Ray Berry Collection until recently when it went found its way back to Joe Dorris who owns and operates the Smoky Hawk Mine today. We then acquired it from him.
The specimen is unusual in that there are 3 Amazonite crystals at the base of a large, dark, smoky quartz crystal. Actually, the smoky quartz crystal appears to be maybe 3 separate crystals that grew parallel and close enough together to form one entity. It is a really unique form with excellent aesthetics.
As is the case with almost all of these combos there is one minor repair to the smoky quartz on the bottom-right corner, in back of the rightmost Amazonite crystal. There is some minor chipping on some of the edges of the smoky quartz, but nothing major, and certainly nothing that affects the incredible aesthetics.
This specimen comes with a custom acrylic display base.
