One termination face of the large crystal is contacted, but is otherwise pristine. Bright neon-green and red fluorescence, as you would expect. From the Ted Bartels Collection. RARE, old-time 270-degree material of superb quality, a rare large crystal and very seldom on the market. Valued at $300-500.
