OKI-388    Quartz and Calcite    Nobabeep, Namibia.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain Collection.  Here is an unusual locality which has produced some world class quartz.  This piece measures 12.8 x 9 x 4.2 cm.  It is a damage free floater of highly translucent smoky quartz.  On one edge is a thin plate of gray quartz which is dotted by what may be pyrite.  The backside shows tiny druze quartz crystals which are white and small ball like calcite crystals (also white).  A wonderful display piece.  I have nothing on the market to compare to for price so I am putting this one out there based on its being an exceptional quartz specimen alone and not even considering its rarity as a locality specimen.  595$
