This perfect, equant, textbook-quality crystal is a very SIGNIFICANT example of this rare species for San Diego, of which few better exist. I recall the handwringing it caused when Chuck traded this from Irv Brown in the mid-1990s. By any standard, this is a beautiful example of the species from any US locale.
