Item Description

A shocking pink-purple color with surreal form marks this unique locality within the Pyrenees. I have seen only a few of them in many years, and this one is of high quality for color saturation and form I would say. Looks like twin volcanos. Ex. Jean Chervet collection (Chervetite is named after this Belgian geologist). Valued at $400, but maybe more? I have not seen others for sale, myself, but for a few lesser pieces.
