Description:Excellent, LARGE, very sharp, notably well-formed, gemmy, colorless, classic Danburites with associated Calcite from the classic locality at Charcas. The finest Danburites in the world are found at this locality, and this particular piece is a wonderful example as it not only hosts large robust textbook crystals, but I can't find any serious damage, save a bit of roughness on one edge, and obviously the base where it was removed from the pocket. The main crystal on this specimen is really attractive, as it's not only glassy and really gemmy near the top, but it shows such wonderful crystal form with an iconic chisel termination. Valued at $1,200 in the inventory for size, quality and the fact that this is a GROUP of crystals, not just a the typical single prism.
