Item Description

Superb cluster of very lustrous Gaudefroyite crystals, some of the best I have ever seen in terms of sharpness and arrangement in thumbnail size. The largest of the well formed crystals is a full 1 cm tall, and several of the crystals in the cluster are doubly-terminated. It is a fullsized thumb, overall. I have seen some larger, fatter single crystals, but not in cluster and not often in a way that makes the piece really "special" despite its size instead of just a small example IN this size range for the TN collector. Simply put, this is a killer thumbnail, valued highly, perhaps $750-1000
