Description

One thing I have to say first,- this specimen is much better in person. Despite the reddish excelently phantomed crystals are showed first, that is not the major - display side. The crystals on the display side are so clear and lustrous, that a good image was unfotunately impossible ;-((( Anyway, let´s start with the reddisch crystals. Numerous of sharp and highly lustrous, transparent crystals, sharp edged and highly lustrous are showing distinct oxide red phantoms. The display side presents hundreds of gemmy, colourless cubes, accompanied by cream-white rhombohedral Dolomite. Both sides are almost pristine, with just tiny imperfections even unworth to report. A superb old-timed Cumbrian specimen in splendid condition.
