Thumbnail, 2.1 x 1.4 x 1.3 cm
A sharp, deep red crystal from the type locality, collected over 40 years ago and recently "uncovered" in an old collection. It is nearly undamaged, and is complete all around. It has a riveting, deep color and translucency to it. I believe it is twinned. So far as we know, this is one of the largest examples of the species. Until this little stash came to light of day, I had no idea these even EXISTED beyond micro-sized. This is a monster!
