Description

Crystallized talc is an out-standing rarity world-wide - and from Alps more or less impossible to acquire. And this is not just a sample - it is a piece of finest quality and in exceptional dimension. Even under daylight you can see the green color and with minor backlight teh saturation becomes very strong. This specimen is for sure among the most rare specimen we ever showed from Austrian Alps. No significant damages to report.
