Description

This is a very rare specimen from a famous classic locality in Styria. The steel-grey blue crystals are razor sharp terminated, they show a very fine contrast with their snowy white edges. There is an exposed main group in the center - it is much more tri-dimensional in person. Along the edges of the specimen it seems to be framed with more brownish matrix. In excellent condition damage-wise! Should be high ranked for the rare locality - this material is very difficult to obtain, and the particular specimen is not just a sample! It is on very high level for the locality.
