A matrixless string of transparent smoky quartz crystals forming a nice "faden" structure. Crystals are highly lustrous on one side while on the other are duller with a pitted surface, color is darker than shown on the pictures. Minimal damage/contact on the right side as seen on the two pictures below that does not detract of the quality and beauty of the specimen.
