Description

Intense dark blue color, fine luster and end-pointed. A really fine sample from the locality. Usually indicolite needs strong backlight - not so here, daylight is enough to expose this wonderful color. Hard to photograph - all indicators (saturation, luster and clarity) are much better in person. No significant damages to report, bottom was on the rock.
