Description

Both crystals are double terminated, sharp and highly lustrous. Their upper third is pink, in the middle they are a little darker and at the lower end-point they show a sharp color-less zoning below a dark green area. The crystals formed a very aesthetic „V“ formed assemble, inter-grown to a disc of sparkling, snowy white cleavelandite. Fantastic contrast and outstanding aesthetic!
