A fine 5-piece set of five crystallized diamonds from Zaire. Two crystals are frosted, interpenetrating cubes of different yellow color; the large diamond is a gemmy, yellow, cuboctahedron; and the last two, very gemmy crystals with gorgeous, clove-brown color, appear to be modified octahedrons. The different crystal forms, colors and variable gemminess make for an extremely nice diamond suite. 2.80 carats total weight.
