Description

The most impressive one - these crystals are free-standing on a thin dark plate of matrix, the crystals are snowy white and glossy and the largest one in the front is 55mm tall - that is so crazy and exceptional for Iceland - and it is not lying; it stands vertically, it is isolated and in best quality! Really a fantastic piece on highest relevance for the entire region.
