Three graduated-in-size red inesite balls aesthetically set on a crust of contrasting xonotlite on matrix. The largest is 2.5 cm and is complete on front (though contacted on back). Now, they aren't as red or as lustrous as Wessels mine material but these are a lot more rare and date back further, rom the mid-1970's. 6.0 x 5.5 x 4.3 cm
