Description

This is really a jewel in finest quality! The intensity of color is nearly like Muzo! Green is very hard to capture with the camera, so I only can ensure you, that the color is as good as it ever could be. Also the luster is remarkable, the faces are very glossy and the termination is sharp. The clarity is exceptional - usually most crystals from the locality show inclusions or cracks, but this one is nearly cut-quality. Crystals in this quality from an alpine locality (the only one in mid-europe of releavance) are out-standing, not even one % unify all these indicators and even the assemble couldn´t be better. This is for sure a littel treasure from the heart of Austrian Alps.
