Fine alpine type scepter from northern Greece. Good transparency, color and luster on the scepter and excellent contrast with the nearly black smoky quartz stem. There seems to be recrystallization on one side where the piece must have broken-off matrix and re healed. The base is borken-off as is typical for scepters from this locality. The blue spots at the base is remnants of blue tack that I realized was still there after taking the photos.
