Description

A really fine crystal from the famous "rocket-pocket" at Pederneira mine. The crystal is highly lustrous and very transparent - I didn´t use any backlight or lamps for the photos! The end-points show pyramidal modifications - the typical habit for "rocket-pocket". The color is vivid green with minor blue green down to the base. One well done repair; no significant damages and on same high quality all around.
