Locality: 
Erzgebirge, Saxony, Germany
Class: 
Single Crystal
Size Range: 
Miniature (4.5-7 cm)
Size: 
5.5 × 5.3 × 3.3 cm
Description

A large coarse single crystal with some crystal faces visible together with some contact scars. The overall shape is identifiable as are the main edges and termination.

Precise location questionable as most likely to be from the cinovec/Zinnwald district and so could be from the Usti Region of the Czech Republic rather than Saxony.

Formally in the collection of Mrs.H Davids.
