A fiery-orange specimen with ultimate top color and luster for the find, which was hit around 2000-ish. This piece is, to me, exceptionally dramatic in the way the crystals flare out and give it a 3-dimensionality. Truly good specimens of this find are not quite uncommon on the market, although much mediocre or darker colored material is still available for sale from time to time. This, though, is the top quality as I recall it at the time, for luster and color.
