This Super Specimen is 2 1/4" L x 2" W x 2 1/4" H (cabinet). The smoky quartz, which is 2" long is very fine with good luster and transparency. The smoky has a restoration near its base, which is not visible from the best display angle. The amazonite are bright teal blue with minor white caps. This is some of the best blue ever found in the District. The piece has been repaired with five fit repairs where the amazonite has been clicked back together. This is a unique piece and was mined during the 2015 season while we were being filmed for Prospectors. There were only a few pieces from the pocket, and this piece is one of the best. I've added some mining photos to the gallery. The pocket was named for my granddaughter, Norah Jo, who in the photograph is a few months old.
