Smoky Quartz, Feldspar
Tongbei, Fujian Province, China
8.7 x 4.7 x 3.9 cm.
A large and quite attractive specimen of Smoky Quartz with Feldspar and Schorl from the earlier years of the same prolific locality that the well-known Spessartine garnet material comes from. It features a matrix of two different kinds of Feldspar which is hosting a graceful group of light-smoky Quartz crystals and a few small partial black Tourmaline crystals. I acquired this piece in 2003 and have seen only a handful of similar pieces over the years. This is my ONLY specimen of this handsome material.
