Miniature, 4.7 x 4.0 x 3.1 cm
This gorgeous miniature features a huge dominant composite crystal that is 3 cm tall, and shows wonderful bevelled terminations! It is undamaged on the front and has only minimal contact damage around the side periphery (mostly just one broken, sideways, minor crystal to the lower-right side). It is very 3-dimensional and glistening, for visual impact. ILLUSTRATED in Mineralogical Record, Jan-Feb 2007, China II issue, page 68.
