Description

The crystals are up to 69mm on edges. Although they are really huge they show very good translucency. I photographed  the specimen with minor backlight to show this incredible concentration of color - this is not just violet; it´s purple! The faces are partly glossy, one side of the main crystal is covered with small quartz crystals and a part of these quartz crystals shows a brownish layer (could be removed easy with some chemistry, but I think the contrast of three colors is too nice). The assemble is really spectacular and the remarkable crystal size makes it even more impressive.
