Miniature, 4.0 x 3.8 x 1.3 cm
Nordmark (Nordmarksberg), Filipstad, Varmland, Sweden
Ex. Martin Zinn
With sharp bronzed crystals of this classic European classic, we have here a superb miniature! The crystals reach 9 mm in size and display prominently on matrix of minutely crystallized pyrosmalite. All crystals are pristine save a small, teeny tiny chip on the left edge of the upper crystal (and it look historic, not recent, this little ding). To this day, these old classics rank as best of species. To obtain one is difficult.
