Shaft #38, Schlema, Saxony, Germany
Cabinet, 10.4 x 6.4 x 4.3 cm
This rich specimen is from the personal collection of a major European dealer, and features a large display face just covered with incredibly sharp, symmetric bismuth crystals! Many are 1 cm, though one cluster has crystals that are elongated and to 2 cm in size. The piece overall is actually attractive, not gray and ugly as too many of these are. The crystals are very 3-dimensional, and the piece overall more 3-dimensional, than it appears. Joe Budd photos.
