A floater, complete gem crystal of jeremejevite showing extremely high glassy luster and good, rich color. These crystals are glassy and reflect brightly from many micro-faces. The intense blue color here is characteristic of the older finds at Swakopmund, though those were of a different crystal morphology. This crystal has a lot of intrinsic gem rough value in transparent cutting zones.
