Miniature, 5.2 x 5.0 x 3.7 cm
One of the most aesthetic miniature-sized specimens in the lot, this dramatic piece features a 2 cm crystal surmounting smaller ones. The rich red color and luster is at the high range for the production here, and its gorgeous in a well-lit case. This specimen has better luster than most, and also better translucency for some reason. The color is red with a tint of orange, but more red than orange. Only minor, peripheral damage of no significance here!
