This is a huge Smoky Quartz Lodolite crystal with multiple phantom markings. One of our most loved pieces at the retail shop, it looks beautiful under the lights but sunlight would also be wonderful. This piece has great clarity to the surface for such a large piece and the bottom is left rough. The Smoky color in this piece is natural. Heavily included Quartz is also known as Lodolite, Occluded Quartz or Garden Quartz when there appears to be organic matter encapsulated within the crystal. It usually contains Chlorite. There may also be feldspar along with a range of other minerals that come together to form a beautiful scene inside Quartz. Working in harmony, Lodolite is thought to be a bridge to the ethereal and eternal, each containing a special essence of the cosmos.
