The large crystal on this exquisite Thumbnail is 2cm tip to tip! This is an extremely elegant and fine, competition-quality piece. In person the color is, I need to say, slightly less rich than shown, more a peach than a pink hue (There is a very slight bit of matrix on the back, attached. that matrix adds reflection of some color to the photos when in person it isn't as deep a pink color but it IS as elegant and sharp as you see!). The gemminess and translucency are high, and the luster is fantastic.
