Description

This is probably the most rare specimen we ever offered in an auction. An enormous 1,5 cm crystal of rare beryllium-silicate milarite associated with many smaller crystals of the same species on matrix. The milarite is mostly gemmy, colourless and mirror bright, which caused big problems in producing meaningful pictures. The milarites are well developed as well, razor sharp and excellent terminated. This is a super alpine specimen in splendid condition.
