Description

A really outstanding piece! The main crystal is freestanding and complete all around. It shows the typical darker zoning along edges and corners, but an exceptional quality! Usually these crystals are etched - this one shows excellent luster, I guess less than 1% of all specimen from this famous discovery has such a good quality of luster. The balance is perfect, it could not be more aesthetic! Along edges and corner you can see the characteristics of this cleft - sharp modifications of rhomb and cube. The contrast to light matrix is just wonderful, minor smoky quartz is also present. Looks fine in each position and it is even better in person. No significant damages to report.
