GEMMY, transparant, and honey-colored, this Phlogopite Mica crystal is perched nicely on contrasting white marble! This is one of the larger and finer examples of these amazing golden Mica crystals I have seen come out, the main crystal being a full 3 cm long. Adding to it, the luster on the faces is superb, as good as I have seen. It may be "just" a mica... but a really fine one worthy of any crystal collection.
