A dramatic, richly salmon-colored Serandite from the classic finds in the 1980s. This single, tiered crystal is a full 6.7 cm in length, and it has an excellent luster. Serandites of this size and color intensity seldom turn up for resale now. This small cabinet has not only the highly saturated color, but the almost metallic surface luster and slight translucency that is the mark of the best pieces. The crystal is in remarkably good shape, with both terminations contacted. This is not only the world's only locality for good Serandite, but really only a few pockets here ever produced it despite the mining of so much material. It is among the most beautiful and desired of rarities. These ONLY came from a few pockets at this amazing locality, and they are not like any other mineral in the world for color and beauty.
