Description:Once an old classic, there was a lapse of production from this locality for decades. Now, re-mining efforts for specimens here have produced a probably brief burst of this old gem material again. This is a GEM quality crystal with fine form and light yellow-green color under incandescent lighting which shifts to a pink color under halogen lighting. Hard to photograph, better in person! The piece is not pristine, as one end is contact, but still WATER! Valued at $1,000 From the worldwide thumbnail / miniature collection of Irv Brown.
