Description

The main crystal is 56mm tall and16 in diameter. The color is simply superb - a very dark, incredible strong blue, which nearly tends to violet (even much better in person) with minor green zoning below the end-point. The crystal is sharp terminated and highgly lustrous. It is set on well shaped glossy Rock Crystals. Should be very high valued for this more uncommon locality and the fantastic color. Photo was done with moderately backlight, no significant damages to report.
