Smokey Quartz Cluster (Tectosilicates)
Unknown Excavation Source

​From image inspection the crystal cluster ​is a​ clean scepter quartz group with superlative luster ​and a light, smoky, coloration noted in several crystals. The cluster has numerous internal negative crystal inclusions. As respected by the current owner; this mineral has a long​ healing history ​in meaning and ​l​ore of many different cultures. The stone presents grounding​,​ resilience​,​ and forgiveness.​ This would be an excellent example for a healing practitioner or lapidary interested in metaphysical earth relationships.​ Freestanding specimen. Overall measurement: 12 inches x 7 inches x 7 inches; with several promontories are 2.5 inches to 3 inches. Unknown weight.

Quartz specimens have a large variance in auction sales achieved. Similar quality and size of smokey quartz can range from hundreds to tens of thousands of dollars. ​Minerals and stones are placed into different grades. This example, as with most precious stones, has a variance in the ​M​ohs hardness scale​, clarity​, and ​source origin​.​ ​Knowing these features is​​ helpful in the assessment of market value​; as smokey quartz can be sourced from all continents and found in many different geological processes. Form ​i​mages​ provided​ and ​accessed recent auction prices achieved​:​ I have created the fair market value given. An in-person valuation could raise the FMV price estimate.
