Item Description

A surreal artistic cluster of intergrown aragonite crystals from recent finds at this well-known locale. These striking doubly terminated, colorful, multi-hued, glassy, translucent with waxy lustre, pseudo-hexagonal aragonite crystals have a beautiful lavender mid-sections and gray terminations. The crystals have been repaired (reattached - acceptable) and lightly cleaned with acid to bring out the bright, sparkly exterior luster, which really enhances the piece. Pristine. A most colorful, sculptural and exotic 360-degree example of a common species and certainly some of the finest examples in the world.
