Alpine Smoky Quartz and Feldspar var. Sanidine from Wulian Co., China
Dimension: 4.3cm x 3.9cm x 3.7cm
Locality: Wulian Co., Rizhao, Shandong, China
A gorgeous new find of stark jet black Smoky Quartz with a natural pedestal accent of creamy white Feldspar, is from a July 2021 discovery at one of the most beautiful and remote locations in China – the Wulian Mountains. The highlight of the piece is the well-formed Potassium Feldspar var. Sanidine which displays prismatic, tabular crystal form and a pearly luster. Like the true Alpine Smoky Quartz, the luster of the Smoky Quartz is exceedingly vitreous and the clarity is translucent. The prism faces of the Smoky Quartz exhibit geometric, horizontal striations that is truly beautiful. It has just enough accent of a contrasting creamy white color to be dramatic, and presents very elegantly. As a bonus, it is a complete floater with micro crystal of grass-green Epidote sparsely scattered on the underside of the piece. Comes with a high quality copper-wired display stand.
