Ex. Richard Heck
A cluster of lustrous and slightly translucent, milky-white crystals of danburite to 9.5 cm in length are surmounted by several short, prismatic, glassy and gemmy, amber-colored crystals of citrine measuring 1.4 cm in length. This is definitely an unusual, compelling combination. Such intensely colored sitrine is rare in nature form any locale, and is selcom seen associated with the danburite here. It is a very aesthetic contrast
