Description

This is a beautiful and excellently twisted Gwindel without matrix from Col de Cristaux at Chamonix, Mt. Blanc. The Gwindel is excellent defined, sharp edged and highly lustrous. It is gemmy as well, one side has a glassy surface the other one is very slightly coated with minor Chlorite. Despite there is a visible imperfection on the Chlorite-coated backside, this is in any case a superb Mt. Blanc Gwindel in good condition.
