For my Nephew who says I never find anything good!

I was visiting a friends claim (with permission) near Lake George CO yesterday and found this beauty.  The tip is dinged a little, but it is one of the finest specimens I have ever found.  The crystal goes from almost clear to smoky at it's termination it measures 15cm.  This crystal was float, in other words I found it in the dirt unassociated with its original vug/pocket.  I hope to do more prospecting next week and find its source (vug), if the owner of the claim is willing.
