A large, intensely lime-green crystal from important finds here over the last few years. This is a fat and robust, 13 gram, crystal. It looks bigger than it masses, because the back is crossed by a contact where it grea against another crystal, and is thus thinned in places. It is complete all around and has moderate translucence. In color, this one is a little bit of a darker hue than the previous two specimens from the same mine, and it makes for a stunning single display crystal.
