A rare MATRIX hiddenite, from the Adam's Farm locality which is actually the type locale for the original find of this material. It was most likely from that original era, in the late 1800s, though no detaile dhistory survives. I handled this piece the first time back in 1998 when I purchased it from the Barlow Collection dispersal, and now have the privilege to handle this special little guy again.
