Description

I have had this specimen in my Mexician collection for many years and although I search the inter-net amost daily for specimens from that country I have rarely seen a larger or better exampe of this species. They very infrequently appear and are usually singe crystals and not twins as this one is. Comes hot glued to an acryic base that makes it sit nicely for dispay (could easily be removed).
