The highly lustrous crystals are up to 36mm on edges, each of all these uncountable steps is razor sharp terminated. The crystals are gemmy and clear with sharp red zoning along their edges, caused by hematite inclusions. Usually specimen from the locality are extracted from the rock, backside and edges of specimen are removed from mother rock or other crystals - not so here, this specimen is a great exception. It is developed as floater, the backside is covered with a thin layer of dolomite and the edges of the piece are well developed, it absolutely complete! The saturation of color is also remarkable - it tends from olive-green to nearly yellow-green. The first photo in the galery shows the specimen with minor backlit, the second image shows it under daylight. Undamaged.
