Description

Most collectors know Sapo only for the blue-caps, but the mine also produce other amazing crystals and colors - like the particulat one from an old discovery during the 90ties. It´s not wearing a blue cap - there is an intense red-purple cap! The lower part of the crystal shows a really incredible concentration of emeral-green color! Also the red-purple color is very intense. It looks like a purple waterfall which is running down the front-side of the crystal in uncounatble tiny but razor sharp steps. The crystal it highly lustrous and complete all arund and shows very attractice modified end-points. No damages or contacts, no repairs.
