Description

Amazing quality - alpine rock crystal at it´s best. The faces show exceptional, mirror-like luster and there are some exciting modifications (tried to show this on some close-ups). Some razor sharp terminated, lustrous adularia crystals are attachted and you also can see amazing chlotite inclusions inside this water-clear crystal. Looks fine on photography, but it is even better in person. Really an alpine jewel. No significant damages to report.
