Description

The assemble is really fantastic! The freestanding brookite crystals (299mm tall) at the top of a floater of highly lustrous quartz crystals could not be more aesthetic! The brookite shows the very best quality - lustrous, sharp and with this most appreciated "sand-clock" phantom! Looks great in each angle!
