Description

Liddicoatite in best quality - please note that the photos were done under daylight; this is the true natural color without any light-effects. There is a wide range of colors - better visible in person, the camera was not able to capture all these different steps of pink and purple. Further you can see brownish and yellow zonings. The end points are pyramidal, all faces are razor sharp and highly lustrous, in excellent condition all around, no significant damages to report - only bottom was on the rock.
