An exquisite small cab specimen from the amazing find of about 4 years ago that redefined what you could expect for this species. Now the flood is gone, and superlative specimens like this stand out even more. The crystals here have top luster and a vibrant sheen to them. The color changes in different lighting through shades of red and orangey-brown, so it is hard to convey in photos what it will look like in your case - but it IS a good specimen I would think impresses more in person, regardless of the difficulty to convey the color in these pics. The major crystal, pristine and undamaged, is a FULL INCH long! The other crystals are of higher translucence as they are smaller, and equally bright and lustrous. If you missed out on the great specimens from the first round some years back, this is the chance to make up for it now!
