Description

This crystal represents a great rarity - violet, pink crystals from Pederneira are very rare and an exceptional rarity, they came only one time out of the so called "Purple Pocket". The crystal is a floater. At the top it shows a sharp, lustrous end-point, the bottom shows stepped modifications - also sharp and lustrous. The clarity of the crystal is nearly flawless, cut quality! At the bottom - a few millimeters below the  end-points - you can see a thin sharp, dark green zoning. Photos were done under daylight without lamps or light-effects. No significant damages to report.
