There is nothing that quite matches the vivid purple-red hue of Kammererite as found in a series of remarkable pockets some 20 years ago, and these crystals show it to its best advantage. The major crystal (1.2 cm) is lustrous and GEMMY (as in, you COULD cut a stone from it and those go for good money, hence this has intrinsic value as facet rough!). The classic form for this mineral, it is sharp and aesthetic as it sits on a matrix coated with a carpet of smaller Kammererites.
