Description

When you look for alpine Titanite you will find green ones from Salzburg county - so this one is very special: first because of the color, which is a really beautiful red brown, reminding to Cognac. And it is special because of the locality in Tyrol - almost 90% of all Titanite are from Salzburg county. This material came from only two clefts and it is still unique, quantity was very low and good pieces are hard to obtain!

The main crystal is 14mm across, twinned, sharp and like all the smaller crystals, which are scattered all over, in finest quality and highly lustrous. Excellent contrast, no significant damages to report.
