Description

This is really a very good piece from old discoveries at this most famous mine! The crystals are highly lustrous and sharp terminated. The exposed main crystal shows a remarkable dimension, it is free-standing and complete also back-side, the faces show this most attractive vicinal-texture and there are no fuzzy centers - it is in cut-quality. The piece also shows this famous daylight fluorescence - from dark, intense green under artificial light to intense blue under daylight. Hard to photograph and much better in person.
