On four sides a polished piece of charoite. The sides show the different structures and colors of this mineral. White “feathers” on black look great. Amazingly beautiful and very interesting charoite of rare colors. Also, in this piece a rare microcrystalline variety of charoite is presented in lilac and light brown areas. Before this piece, I had never seen a charoite with such a variety of colors.
