SMOKE QUARTZ level – partly coated with CALCIT.
As a rule, the CALCIT is etched away with dilute hydrochloric acid. However, this level is “Bergfrisch” NOT cleaned and so completely natural.
Himalayan rock crystal and smoky quartz steps are typical of the Alpino, so the structure and the paragenesis are almost identical to steps from the ALPS.
It was found in the SHIGAR valley in HIMALYA
