English: Quartz (Var.: Smoky Quartz), Microcline (Var.: Amazonite)
Locality: Crystal Peak area, Park and Teller Cos., Colorado, USA (Locality at mindat.org)
This is a classic combination, in rare aesthetic and dramatic form and balance! Ogften, you have too much smoky or too much amazonite, but this is such a perfect mix of the two, I couldn't believe it was unrepaired and unfaked. The smoky is GEMMY and sharp, and completely terminated and freestanding 360 degrees around. The amazonites have the best color you could have asked for in pre-Tree Root Pocket material from the region, and the contrast between the sharp smoky is stark and dramatic. It comes from the noted collection of Dr. Dick Webster, one of the founders of plastic surgery and a major mineral collector several decades ago. This collection just surfaced through his children, to the market, with a friend of mine. Generally, all are good and all are classics...he had damned good taste! But this piece, while not nearly the most expensive in the collection, was one of my alltime favorites for its unique qualities. This is a superb example worthy of any collection. 8.2 x 7 x 6.2 cm
