Description

This is a really spectacular sample from more recent discoveries at Madagascar. The specimen shows an isolated, huge, sharp terminated and highly lustrous cube (37mm on edges). The colro is a very attractive, intense dark green. The contrast to white glossy matrix is really wonderful! Most material from the locality are just clusters - isolated crystals on matrix are more uncommon and hard to obtain, there was only a low number fo specimen in compare-able quality and aesthetics. No significant damages to report, sawed at the base.
