Item Description

A SHARP and impressive cluster made primarily of two large cubes, to 5.5 cm on a side. As the pictures show, there is hardly any damage at all obvious, and wear is very minimal. This is a high quality cluster, way above most of the material that comes from this well-known locality. The crystals are large to be so free of damage, although one crystal has a thin section which apparently was cleaved off and has been repaired (approx 1 cm wide an da few mm shallow). I have seen such specimens run a spectrum of prices, and sometimes it depends on luck of the draw for a year's production, and what was found. But this should go for a relative premium, and at a show, even direct, would be over $750. 1188 grams - HEFTY AND IMPRESSIVE!
