This is an important parisite crystal from older workings at the emerald district in Colombia. Although recent production from Afghanistan has since surpassed COlombian parisite in overall size, these columnar crystals still remain the important historic standard for the species and this is a super, fat, translucent crystal with rich color. It is doubly-terminated with contact-terminations atop and below. 3 x 2.8 x 2.1 cm
