Outstanding single crystal of Phenakite. The crystal is gemmy throughout, and the luster is superb. In fact, the crystal is so gemmy that it lights up when photographed, making it tricky to show how gemmy it truly is. Not that it detracts from the display, the crystal is contacted along one spot on the side and the bottom, but it is far better in person. One of the best I have seen, from anywhere; this from a major new find of 2003.
