So lets take a look at some of the smokys they had on display. There were a couple bigger smoky crystals from other parts of the world, but I decided to concentrate on Colorado minerals for this post on my blog.
|A case could be made for the white quartz overgrowth enhancing this specimen|
|Exquisite smoky with fluorites surrounding the base|
|A Colorado collection is incomplete without one of these|
|Nearly 2ft high smoky quartz crystal!|
|Everyone wants one of these elusive combos|
The last group of pictures show the varied colors of amazonite found in the Lake George Intrusive of Park and Teller counties, Colorado. Of course this is only a sample of what's at the Museum. There is topaz, fluorite and many other worldwide minerals including gold.
