I love this piece! It is so unique...Two gemmy, water clear crystals sit side by side. One of the pair has a beautiful smoky amethyst phantom while the other is crystal clear. You couldn't make a sharper contrast if you carved the thing! On the back there are five small prehnite balls. The steep termination is unusually steep, with an extra face thrown in to accentuate the dramatic rise at the top of the crystals. This is a perfect 360 degree mineral specimen and aside from that the clarity and transparency are as high as could be wished for.
