The sharp, lustrous, translucent prisms have typical zoned purple-gray color and the large crestal crystal is 4.3 cm across. An outstanding floater, complete all-around and nearly pristine, with only trivial edge wear. A fascinating and excellent 360-degree aragonite from the Allen Dillwith Collection.
