Small Cabinet, 9.0 x 3.7 x 2.3 cm
Taplejung District, Mechi Zone, Nepal
Ex. Marc Weill
This totally gemmy, water-clear crystal is an old piece that was on the market in the late 1990s when it went into the Marc Weill collection. It was later exchanged out and remained in a private collection the last few years. For the locality, this is a significant single crystal of extraordinary thickness and gemminess, combined with sharp form. the top termination is complete and shows nice bevelled edges. The bottom termination is somewhat stepped and intricate, not flat - but is complete and interesting, and shows luster on the stepped faces that present. So, it is a floater, complete. It is 150 grams. Joe Budd photos
