This is totally transparent and very brilliant "young-open" gwindel featuring almost closed crystal faces on front and back, whereas both the right and left sides show pointed terminations and open crystal habit.

Ghis is a very fine Gwindel resting on a granite matrix. The colour is just a slight smoky hue, but still it is clearly visible and very pleasing. regular smoky crystals are attached on bith sides. there is one small spot of damage, which is located on the lowest left side of the gwindel, where it touches the smoky quartz next to it. This is, however, not a detraction in context and everything else is in pristine condition.
