SOLD
A superb Bastnaesite specimen. Large at 3.5 cm across, this amazing crystal has a deep cinnamon color and is gemmy along all the side faces. The main termination is sharply formed and has excellent, aesthetic beveling to the sides. The side faces are all highly lustrous, as is the base. There even appears to be two generations of growth, as the lower portion of the crystal is wider than the upper. From finds in the early 2000s here. Ex. Charlie Key.
