A rare, old-time, purple foitite from Mt. Mica, Maine. The lustrous crystal is strongly striated and is doubly terminated, with the terminations being etched. The un-retouched backlit photo highlights the purple color saturation and gemminess of this crystal. From an older museum collection dating to prior to WW I.
