Smoky Quartz from the Bill Moller Collection – Petersen Mountain, Washoe Co., Nevada
Smoky quartz specimens from Peterson Mountain, which includes the noted Hallelujah Junction locale, have become US classics. This large, doubly-terminated crystal is partially transparent and has rich smoky colour. Some faces have exciting skeletal features—complete all-around.
The primary termination is contacted but has only trivial bruising. One lower face is chipped but is out of sight. This imposing and excellent large crystal was self-collected by Bill Moller, a noted California collector. He recently passed away.
