Superb miniature of this famous material!This piece is a tight cluster of lustrous,very gemmy and sharp crystals on matrix!The crystals glow when some light passes through them and the piece has many angles of display!The only issues are some wear,since the species is very fragile and contacting on the back,but when displayed,it looks just wonderful!
