Description

A spectacular crystal - photos don´t do justice to it. It is water-clear, no cracks or inclsuions. The faces how exceptionbal luster and the elongated thin habit gives a very aeshtehic impact to the piece. On the backside a few dark brown-red grains are intergrown to the faces - you can see them through front-display - please note these are no inclusions and they are not on the front-side. It is just this optical quality that you can see them on the reverse. Material from the area is very hard to obtain - the area is in the heart of the National Park "Hohe Tauern", field collecting is prohibited, only a few local coleectors have a permit from the government. No significant damages to report, it is a floater and even the bottom consits of sharp tiny faces.
