A superb 2 x 1.7 x 1.3 cm triphyllite crystal, complete all around. It has a slightly purpley color to it, and has sharp faces. In prepping this piece, I noted what may be one repair at the contact to the matrix. The repair is, truthfully though, very hard to notice...just being on the safe side. In any case, its a superb example both for the specie sand the locality. An old "FP" tape on the back denotes it was from the Fred Pough Collection 6.5 x 4.3 x 2.5 cm
