Item Description

A showy and excellent, stereotypically crystallized morganite crystal showing a lovely baby-pink color and nice glassy translucence. One face of the 5.7 cm crystal shows a water-clear, gem quality section, while the remaining faces are lightly frosted. The piece has textbook tabular hexagonal form. A nearby 2.6 cm vertical muscovite book, a 7 mm pollucite crystal with bright yellow fluorescence and the snow-white albite matrix adds to the attractiveness. This complete all-around crystal is partially etched and it is hard to tell, that two faces are lightly contacted and another face has a small bruise. From a recent find in 2008. The piece has several display possibilities. Come with an engraved lucite base (normally $125-150) for free. THIS IS MUCH, MUCH BETTER IN PERSON!! Valued $750
