Beautifully gemmy and lustrous, pink roselite crystals line the floor of a 9 mm vug in quartz matrix on this fine OLD-TIMER from the Erzgebirge of Germany. Roselite is a RARE arsenate and this is a good one. The accompanying label, in German, says that the piece was found in 1874!! 133 years old! Ex George Elling Collection.
