Someday, people will look back and realize that these were one of the great US classic finds of the era. This large specimen has absolutely HUGE compound crystals; essentially, the specimen is a series of stacked whorls of fanned shiled-like crystal, of an iridescent purple and gold. The colors are beautiful, and more apparent in person. The compound crystal on top measures over 5 cm across! An extremely impressive specimen from an important find.
