Description

Look at this dimension! And at the color! At the base you can see a dark blue phantom, then the color turns to lavender and pink tones, in the upper thrid you can see a sharp terminated green zoning and finally it shows again pink color. The crystal is highly lustrous and in cut-quality, there are only minor internal cracks, all faces are highly lustrous, translucency is excellent - photos were done without any light-effects; just under daylight! The crystal is carefully and barely visible repaired, no significant damages to report.
