Great 4 mineral combo from a classic Colorado locality with dark Smoky Quartz crystals rising out of well formed Microcline. The largest Smoky Quartz crystal grouping has a Siderite replaced by Hematite formation that formed on top. The Microcline crystals are somewhat translucent and Goshenite is forming throughout this specimen. This specimen also does an excellent job of reflecting light from multiple Quartz, Goshenite, and Microcline crystals. A large Smoky Quartz cathedral sits in the center of the piece.
