Description

A very uncommon specimen, in this case not from the famous summit-cleft. It is from a small discovery only a few meters below peak elevation in the north slope of the mountain. The cubes show razor sharp termination and the quality of faces is reamarkable, as there is no etching. Some faces show satiny lsutrous, others are very glossy. An other rare indicator is the combination with small roses of barite along the edges of the specimen and also inside of some crystals. When backlit it show very warm violet, nearly yellow zones, but also some areas with blue internal color. No significent damages to report.
