This is an odd mineral specimen. It is a portion of a large, smoky quartz crystal that has been sawn off, roughly parallel to the large face in the photo. The specimen is interesting since it is laced through with hair-like, golden rutile crystals, some up to several cm long. Beautiful as a mineral specimen or as lapidary material!
