Description

The main crystal is 96mm, it is razor sharp terminated, the luster is simply perfect - even for Elmwood this is exceptional. Further it shows a very fine clarity and a twinned "butterfly" habit. The contrast to light matrix is very sweet and balance and aesthetics couldn´t be better. This specimen is out of Europe´s leading private collection - the Fabian Wildfang collection, which stands for highest quality-standards. No significant damages to report. Will come with the Wildfang-label.
