Miniature, 6.5 x 3.1 x 3.0 cm
Kokotohai Mine, Xinjiang, China
I have not seen others from here, and this seems to be a small find, presented at Tucson by John Attard. In person, this is a 3-Dimensional crystal that is obviously with a slight red tint, and quite a bit prettier than it looks here. It is freestanding on a natural pedestal of matrix - an amazing trim job, eh?! Mor emay come, or not, who can say? All I can say is that I think this is a good one by any standard from any country and worth the price on its own merits, though to me it has extra appeal BECAUSE it is from a novel locale for good tantalite crystals to the market
