Tall, glassy Quartz gwindel. Slightly smokey in color, this is perhaps the best Paki gwindel I've seen, certainly the best I've owned. They don't turn up very often, and this is the only one I saw at the 2020 Tucson show. Tall, twisting form, it's undamaged and must have detached naturally from the pocket wall as the bottom is slightly rehealed.
