An INCREDIBLY RARE, 5 mm, GEM, cherry-red nambulite crystal on a bit of matrix from the ONE-TIME find at the Kombat Mine in the early 1970s. Ex. John Barlow Collection. John bought a huge lot of this material when it came out in the one time find. I got these thumbnail crystals from his grandson about 5-6 years ago. I have NOT seen the material for sale in ANY quality or size since. It is so incredibly rare; most folks will never own any. This is small, but at least its pretty, and has crystal faces, and has gemminess....something even many small pieces do not. An ultimate rarity!
