Description

A superb rock crystal from alpino-type clefts from Haramosh mountains. We should rank this as high as any compare-able specimen from Alps, the circumstances there are even much more difficult than in Alps - teh mounatins are much higher, the ways to the localities are quite longer, the political situation makes it really dangerous to enter the region. And the quality is superb: razor sharp termination, water-clear crystals and exceptional luster! The main crystal is raising up vertically and the assemble couldn´t be more attractive. No significant damages to report.
