Description

This large crystal (up to 40 mm) is complete all around, sharp terminated and the faces are all glossy and show a nice texture. Minor backlight expose the amazing purple color. The assemble looks very aesthetic and there really not too many complete crystals in this size and quality on matrix. On one side you can see a thin layer, which could be - most likely - removed with some careful cleaning. No significant damages to report.
