Description

Outstanding specimen. A little smoky citrine floater crystal, multi-tipped (almost a 'gwindel'?) with dark green verdelite crystals and minor mica. The quartz crystal shows only very little edge wear. The verdelite crystals are not terminated. Still this is an exceptional showy specimen. You won't find something comparable easily.
