Description

An oustanding rarity: this material was only found for one time in the 90ties and it was a very small find! The matrix shows light beige color and consists of barite. Inside this matrix you can see a vug, covered with sparkling tiny snowy white celestine crystals. And finally there are aquamarine blue, gemmy, end-pointed celestine crystals. A wonderful contrast, very eye-catching. Who said that rare means black and ugly? In excellent condition damage-wise. Should be high ranked for rarity and uniqueness.
