Mined in Bahia, Brazil
Price: $52.50
This rare quartzoid specimen is completely natural - just as it was found within the earth. It is a naturally terminated smoky quartz crystal with very dark natural color - it is so dark that it appears to be almost black. It shows vitreous luster on the multiple stepped pyramidal terminations which are in very good overall condition with some abraded areas. This naturally terminated smoky quartz crystal has what appears to be a 4-sided termination, but it is actually the juncture of two bi-pyramidal end terminations with no prismatic faces in between. The mineralogical term for this bi-pyramidal form without prismatic faces is "quartzoid". This is a great specimen to fool a geologist with, since at first glance the form of the quartz's 4-sided crystal "tip" looks more like a cubic black flourite crystal!

This rare quartzoid specimen is completely natural - just as it was found within the earth! It is naturally terminated smoky quartz crystal with very dark natural color - it is so dark that it appears to be black. The smoky quartz shows brilliant vitreous luster on multiple parallel and stepped pyramidal terminations, which are mostly in fine condition. This naturally terminated smoky quartz specimen has 4-sided terminations, but these are actually the juncture of double-ended (bi-terminated) bi-pyramids with no prismatic faces. The c-axis is parallel to the base so the "4-sided terminations" standing up are actually the juncture of the terminations of the two 6-sided pyramids. The mineralogical term for this bi-pyramidal form without prismatic faces is "quartzoid".
