Cabinet, 10.7 x 6.6 x 3.5 cm
This particular crystal is a rather thick and robust crystal with bright purplish-pink color. For a crystal of this thickness, it is amazingly gemmy and complete all the way around. Honestly, the crystal is more than 90% gem quality and shows a VIBRANT pink color when viewed down the c axis. The crystal is rather lustrous as well, at not at all dull or pitted like many can be. Ex. Norm and Roz Pellman and Richard Kosnar Collections.
