Description

An outstanding zepter in remarkable dimension. This was a very small discovery - first specimen I saw at the Munich show 2 years ago. From 6 boxes I selected only 2 undanaged specimen. When I saw this material at the current Sainte Marie show I made the same experience - there were about 20 crystals - this was the only one in good condition damage-wise. Although there are some minor chips, it is really in fine condition all around. The faces are highly lustrous, the inclusions in teh water-clear crystal are really very amazing, there are uncountable details on this amazing crystal! The upper part of the zepter shows an intense purple saturation, on one side you can see more smoky color tones. Looks great in really each angle. Although it looks good on my photos I have to note that it is even more impressive in person!
